About Us

Clay pots. African traditional ethnic crockery. Tribal art. South Africa.

Uvelaphi is a web and mobile platform that seeks to connect African people with their roots by increasing knowledge about African clan names. It also seeks to create an intergenerational reservoir of history for the Nguni people.


This platform does not seek to impose any tribal cultures on any individuals. It is not intended to cause any tribal segregation but merely inform where there’s lack of knowledge about the African clan names. The ancestral order of the clan names might differ from region to region. Home is where the heart is.
