Abstract:
There are two Adamia themes within the historical tradition of the peoples of Busoga: a Kintu theme associated with the movements of peoples from the east and a Mukama theme associated with the Lwo migrations into eastern Uganda. The two themes, as related in the popular tradition, reflect the emerging ethos of peoples in northern and southern Busoga more than they reflect the historical context of the events involved. un the other hand, the record of clan and family tradition of participant groups brings into focus the historical context of the events associated with Kintu and Mukama. These events belong to an early period of Busoga history--later in the North than in the South--a period in which the foundations of Busoga society are laid and the traditions of the peoples given their initial direction.
