A thorough Afrocentric appraisal of the multitude of Bantu-Kushite/Æthiopian Makabila [Kiswahili: Ethnic Groups], their cultures defining social institutions, mores and customs, leads to the assessment that they are subculture communities, composite societies that at one time in Global Afrikan history were social divisions of a greater Bantu-Kushite/Æthiopian national community, sharing a distinctive linguistic heritage and material and non-material culture.[1]
