Introduction / History

The Mbowe tribe is among the earliest settlers of Northern Barotselend, currently concentrated in Lukulu District. This is believed to ha been the entry point of the Luyana as they migrated from the Luba - Lunda empire. Led by Mwamba, the queen, this group established its heaquarters at Sangaulu, the Alui capital. The Kingship of the Alui is believed to have been established there and later moved to Lialui ( home of the Lui). Despite having been the pinnacle of the kingdom, today the Mbowes have been relegated to a minority grouping led by their Chief Imenda. Many settlers such as the Luvales and Mbundas who fled from wars in Angola were received by the Mbowes and allocated land in various places. The Mbowe are generally pastoral people with fishing as one of their subsidiary activities.
