Abstract
In both South Africa and the United States, the occurrence of certain political and social events have affected the cultural structure of the African society. As the patterns of community have been lost over time, due to colonialism and conquest, the foundations of traditional culture and tribal ritual have also been lost. There must be a recovery from this hopeless state of non-community. In the examination of the growth and development of a culture, it is pertinent to identify how people relate to themselves and other groups as a function of cultural identity. An intricate part of this is the way in which the individuals interact with each other spatially, and as a result of their surrounding environment.
