Angola - History
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Do you know what a rivalry is? You've probably heard the word between two sports teams. One team is said to have a rivalry with another. It means that each team is determined to prove itself better than the other. Can you think of any rivalries in your life? Maybe between your school and another, or between your group of friends and another. Or maybe you have a personal rivalry with an enemy, or maybe even a brother or a sister.
 
2     Angola's history is full of rivalries. From its earliest days of disputes between tribes to its modern-day struggles between political parties, Angola has had plenty of bitter disputes. One of its worst battles was over slavery.
 
3     Angola is a country in western Africa. It is bordered by the Congo, Zambia, and Namibia. Much of Angola's early history is a mystery, as Angola's recorded history was an invention of European settlers who came to Angola's shores in the 16th century. What is known about Angola prior to the Europeans is that there were very different tribes in the region. Among them were the Ovimbundu, Kimbundu, and the Bekongo. These groups considered themselves very different and were often at odds with one another.
