Dhaiso of Tanzania

Introduction / History
The Dhaiso live in the lush, tropical foothills of the Usambara Mountains in the northeastern corner of Tanzania. Most are farmers and are able to grow a wide variety of foods and spices such as cocoa beans, coconut, cassava, black pepper, and cinnamon. All of the Dhaiso are followers of the Muslim religion.

The Dhaiso are small in number and live peacefully in close proximity to many other people groups. A number have intermarried with people of other languages. Due to this need for a language of wider communication, the Dhaiso are very fluent in Swahili, the national language and the language of trade along the coast. They use Swahili almost to the exclusion of Dhaiso, their mother tongue. In fact for many, Swahili is their mother tongue. This is all to say that the Dhaiso are in the process of losing their original language and much of the accompanying culture and traditions. Their unique cultural identity is being lost.
