SOCIAL CONDITIONS OF SHINASHA TRIALS IN NORTHWESTERN ETHIOPIA

Abebe Ano Alula, Arjun Rao Kuthadi.

Abstract
This article is primarily concerned to explore the social conditions of the Shinasha community in northwestern Ethiopia. Shinasha is some of the Indigenous groups with Ca. 60,587 population in Ethiopia, Africa continent, who are living Benishangul-Gumuz Regional State, near the Sudanese borderland. They have different social practices that distinguish them from others. They were part of the historical Gonga people who once lived on edges of the River Abay. Where were the early places of settlement of the Shinasha? What were the Social conditions, social changes and continuity in the Shinasha community? I address these questions by historically juxtaposing with social conditions and its dynamics with my interviews with the key informants and observations of changes in conditions of the Shinasha. This study highlights the geographic and background of the study area. The study tries to focus on the early settlement of the Shinasha and their conquest under imperial rule. It attempted to analyze the social organization of the Shinasha society. The significance of the paper is contributed to the understanding of the Social conditions and social changes and continuity of the Shinasha community in the historical outline. The social history of the Shinasha is the least studied themes in Ethiopian historiography. A profound historical reconstruction of Shinasha social conditions may show a comprehensive and objective experience of the people of northwestern Ethiopia. The study is also reduced confusion and misinterpretations of the experiences of the Shinasha community. The method used contains the interviewing key informants to support the existing sources. Their witnesses were cautiously crosschecked and analysed through qualitative methods.

Key words: Shinasha, Social Conditions, early settlement, Social change, Benishangul Gumuz Region.
