The contrast between the various peoples of Uganda reflects the variety of surroundings and is demonstrated in the multiplicity of cultures, traditions and norms. Uganda has various cultural institutions e.g Buganda with the Kabaka as the cultural head, Bunyoro(Omukama), Ankole(Omugabe), Bukonjo(Omumbere), Iteso( Emoromor), Busoga( Kyabazinga) etc. Also cultural sites are important to certain groups e.g Kasubi Tombs (burial grounds for Kabakas) and Naggalabi (where the Kingdom started) are particularly important to the Baganda. Some groups further practice cultural norms e.g the Bagisu and Sabiny practice circumcision.
The union of many people with their own traditional lands, customs, and ways of life has created Uganda. These varying cultures are kept alive by many colorful ceremonies marking specific historical events celebrating the seasons of the year, child births and the deaths of very old people. Spontaneous dancing and music are typical occurrences during such celebrations and also the way of life in Uganda. Visitors are often welcome to observe these ceremonies – although as a courtesy tourists should always ask permission before taking photographs.
Visitors can remind themselves of Uganda’s rich cultural heritage by taking home a souvenir. In every village the people are skilled in creating colorful arts and crafts, both traditional and modern. Items include colorful mats in traditional patterns and drums from Buganda; baskets and ware from Toro; clay pots made near Entebbe (Kajjansi); mats and cushions made from bark cloth of omutaba tree; musical instruments from Teso; and wooden carving from Mbarara and Karamoja.
