African Cultures destroyed by Christian conquest

African Cultures and traditions destroyed by Christian con quest

African Cultures destroyed by Christian conquest

 

Christians are known to be the destroyers of indigenous cultures.  What happened in Africa is less well known than that in the American continent. The African Cultures and traditions destroyed by Christian conquest are listed here. Though traces of some cultures still exist, the numbers are in single or double digits primarily serving tourists, anthropologists, photographers and documentaries. The carnage is still being perpetrated by missionaries from Americas, Europe and even from Kerala.
