  • Everybody so as you know, we are working on the next few episodes, we're gonna film them which means this week

  • I'm gonna give you a filler week episode and very quickly. Once again, this episode is brought to you by our good sponsors Squarespace

  • I'm pretty sure many of you have already heard of them. You know what they're all about. We'll talk about them. Later

  • Oh and also very quickly you guys asked for it

  • So we finally made blood of those who fight for the freedom

  • T-shirts on Johnny V now calm you can get them perfect for parties or celebrations or Halloween

  • I don't know. Do you guys anyway we've done Brazil we've done India we've done Russia and now it's time to go to Africa

  • I read a lot of your comments and by popular demand we are going to do the

  • provinces of South Africa a few side notes before we start South Africa has three capitals

  • they have 11 official languages and three general categorized people groups the whites the blacks and the coloreds the coloreds are basically anybody who is

  • Either mixed or just not white or black

  • It's kind of funny because many celebrities that we usually associate as icons for the black community like Beyonce or Will Smith

  • They wouldn't even be considered black in South Africa Trevor

  • Noah even joked about this once also

  • Many people groups in South Africa have kings they hold very important roles of influence for their communities

  • but on a legislative level they don't really have government power and finally pretty much everybody speaks English or

  • Afrikaans to some degree maybe a little less in the rural areas

  • But yeah, in order to intercommunicate English is usually the first language choice

  • All right, and with those notes in check, let's begin first one Eastern Cape birthplace of Nelson

  • Mandela capital is be show but the largest cities are Port Elizabeth and East London the largest people group being the boson people

  • That's right. Get it. Right awesome. Also known as the language of Wakanda. Yeah, that's the language

  • They're speaking in Black Panther, although keep in mind

  • The click language is actually kind of originated from the Kois on people group

  • But you know, you're not even listening moving on right now

  • This guy's where long Casey cow. He holds the title of the current king of the toss-up people

  • They also have a lot of chiefs and like minor kings. I was told one of them got arrested

  • It's complicated in events

  • You might see people wearing traditional

  • Clothing and articles like the ink feta and eat pea and the oak gotta worn by women

  • Whereas for men you might see that in gawa you see Tonga and head beats

  • Whoo?

  • There are tons of beautiful sites like the hole in the wall the valley of desolation

  • The TT gamma forest and they have one of the only few ski resorts in sub-saharan Africa. Yes on rare occasions

  • It actually does sometimes kind of snow here, especially in the winter months of like July August. Keep in mind

  • We're in the southern hemisphere Free State but Golden Gateway to the heart of Africa

  • Capital is bloom pentane also known as the fountain of flowers. It's also the judicial capital of South Africa

  • This was basically the old poor Orange Free State is established by white Dutch colonizers that were kind of running from the British

  • So yeah, quite a few white Afrikaans people here

  • now the largest group that lives here are the SU to people and just like we talked about in the last two - episode they

  • Are basically the brothers of the suit - they have the same customs traditions language and history

  • They wear the bus - to blankets and they ride horses

  • Stuff like that many South Africans don't even really see the suit - as like a separate country

  • But just kind of like diplomatic Leon paper. They kind of have to here you can see them below tea mountains. They're beautiful

  • You're also known for having Fred firk dome the largest verified impact crater on earth. Rancid

  • This is also kind of like the site of controversy with that whole government land plot

  • redistribution policies that they just started where they're kind of like either buying farm plots from white African owners like either for super cheap or

  • They're just kind of taking it's a messy topic and I'm not one to speak authoritative me on it. So yeah ko-teng

  • That's right counting not counting

  • It means the place of gold because it's kind of like the site where they have that huge gold rush back in the 1800s

  • It's the smallest province in size. But the largest in population. It's kind of like what some paulo is to brazil

  • We have the largest city Johannesburg aka Josie Gianni Joburg

  • They also have Pretoria which is the executive capital of the country

  • So yeah, this place is kind of like a big deal for South Africa. The place is super diverse

  • There's all different types of African groups that live here, but the largest probably the SWANA and the north - two people

  • There's also lots of immigrants that come here from all over the world

  • Got a lot of Indians a lot of Chinese a lot of Europeans. They have the only street in the world

  • Of course, you already know this was the place where the World Cup was hosted

  • They have the largest urban forests on earth

  • They have that really cool gold reef city on Meuse mint Park a Chinese temple

  • For some reason one of the most notable spots Freedom Park, it's beautiful lots of monuments there, but overall yeah

  • It's kind of like the Big Shot province that keeps the whole country functioning

  • Kwazulu-natal the Zulu Kingdom home of the Zulus capital Pietermaritzburg. However, the largest city is Durban as name implies

  • It is the place of Zulus natal is derived from Portuguese for Christmas because Bosco Atacama kind of discovered the place on Christmas Day

  • Obviously, once again, this is the epicenter of everything Zulu

  • You've probably heard of them Shaka Zulu the military leader

  • Zulu clothing Zulu tradition Zulu music everything they are essentially the cousins of the Swazi people that we talked about in the swathi kniepp Assad

  • Had the same read dance festival even many of the white people that live here. They speak Zulu as a second language

  • They have a king this guy. He actually had to take refuge on st

  • Helena Island to kind of avoid being possibly assassinated by his uncle so I've been told

  • Gandhi used to live here and now tons of Indians have moved in and it's really interesting because this is the only province in which

  • Zimbabwe capital being bullock Hwanhee now

  • This province is kind of home to like three distinct people groups northern suited people are famous for having a rain queen supposedly

  • She can make it rain so many pop culture references I could throw in there

  • But I want they have a lot of cool metal AR and they like to play music on this thing called the deep Ella

  • It's like a thumb piano now that Tsonga inhabit areas that are both in South Africa and Mozambique

  • They technically kind of don't have a king but many people that are descendants of this guy

  • They claim that they can be king because he was kind of like a big-shot for their tribe

  • Now the Venda are like one of the least westernized influence groups in all of South Africa

  • They do have a king and many chiefs. And also there's like a sub group called the lembeh

  • I think we kind of talked about this in the Ethiopia episode

  • They're kind of seen as like what are the lost tribes of Israel African Jews?

  • Dance a famous dish over here would be more pani worms. You can eat them cooked or fried or dried

  • They also have part of the famous Kruger National Park in their province

  • They honor the Swazi king and many of their chiefs. Just live in south

  • Africa, just like let's do too many South Africans

  • Don't even really see a sweaty knee is a separate country

  • But it's kind of more like a parents house with a fence over it. Otherwise, there's that in the ballet people

  • They also have their own king

  • They're also famous for having those women that have like really big beaded necklaces and those brass bands all over their necks

  • Sometimes it elongates their necks very similar to the karen tribe in Southeast Asia. They also have those really cool geometrically painted houses

  • However, those patterns were actually kind of like a little bit of a secret code

  • They used to kind of hide from their enemies and the boars

  • Otherwise, they're very famous for the blyde river canyon the third deepest canyon in the world

  • And also possibly the greenest lots of amazing hiking spots one of the oldest caves in the world

  • Northern cape the largest province yet

  • The least populated capital is Kimberley aka the city that started the whole

  • Mining industry also home to the Sun the most ancient people in the world. Now, this is an interesting one for one

  • It has the highest white population ratio out of all the provinces in South Africa at over 40 percent mostly afrikaners of Dutch descent

  • They aren't even related to the majority bond two peoples that migrated from West Africa thousands of years ago

  • There aren't too many of them

  • There are literally siblings of the exact same SWANA people that we talked about in the Botswana episode

  • I love how we can just give you guys shortcuts by videos that we already made

  • It's funny though, because South Africa actually has more SWANA people then all of Botswana now they don't have a king

  • But they have many chiefs actually richer than many of the Kings in South Africa it all had to do with platinum mining

  • That's right. This province is the largest platinum producer in the world

  • It's also famous for kind of being like the Las Vegas of South Africa

  • Western Cape the wine country

  • The capital is Cape Town, which is also the legislative capital of South Africa and it's also nicknamed the mother city now, you know

  • It's so south. You can literally see penguins on the beach. Sometimes it's where the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean meet

  • It's the first place where the Europeans arrived in South Africa
