Indl'ukutsha is a term that is there to reaffirm the hierarchal arrangement amongst initiated men. This arrangement is not one that is merely set up for itself but finds its linkages with the idea that wisdom/knowledge is acquired by the one who has travelled the most atop the landscape of manhood and survived the rivalries encountered. It is these men who are then assumed as the bearers of knowledge that should passed to the next men in line. This ordering is that of umkhuluwa nomninawa (older/younger brother relation). Which can be imagined as that of the father and the son. If slavery was able to severe all bonds African people had with their history and humanity in order to produce a commodity to be sold on the auction block, black people. How do we begin to talk of the black family as a domain in which progress can be measured or a haven for which cultural production can take place that does not reproduce or sustain white life? This does not only speak to the horrors of the trans atlantic slave route but also the colonial experience that lumps all black bodies.
