Introduction / History
The Burunge have a language that is of Cushitic origin and has different structure than that of the majority of people in Tanzania who speak Bantu based languages. Therefore they like to keep to themselves and are extremely proud. They are mostly farmers, growing maize, millet, and sorghum during the rains. During the dry season they turn mostly to socializing from home to home around their home-brewed beer, called 'pombe'.

The Burunge have been affected by a variety of religions. Many have adopted outside religions on the surface, such as Christianity and Islam, but retain much of the traditional religious beliefs.

Some of the people feel that they have no way of knowing what the truth really is and what to really believe because the religions with which they are familiar came from outside and the sacred books are in a foreign tongue.
