No more... Rwanda genocide!


The Rwandan Genocide

On April 6, 1994, Hutus began killing the Tutsis in the African country of Rwanda. Lasting a bit more than 100 days, the Rwandan Genocide left approximately 800,000 Tutsis and Hutu dead a real genocide.


Difference between Hutu and Tutsi?
When Rwanda was first settled, the people who lived there raised cattle. Soon, the people who owned the most cattle were called "Tutsi" and everyone else was called "Hutu." At this time, a person could easily change categories through marriage or cattle acquisition.

The Hutu and Tutsi are two peoples who share a similar past.

It wasn't until Europeans came to colonize the area that the terms "Tutsi" and "Hutu" took on a racial role. The Germans were the first to colonize Rwanda in 1894. They looked at the Rwandan people and thought the Tutsi had more European characteristics, such as lighter skin and a taller build. Thus they put Tutsis in roles of responsibility.
