Ekisaakaate UK

Ekisaakaate is derived from Luganda language and it means an enclosure where young boys were trained into leaders. These young boys acquired leadership and other political skills, knowledge on cultural practices and values, as well as occupational skills, such as blacksmithing. At the end of the training, they were considered educated citizens.

They were often appointed as the King’s chiefs while others were sent to work in the palace in the belief that the boys trained ensured continuity of leadership within the kingdom. Girls did not undergo this cultural training but were culturally tutored at home by their mothers, paternal aunts and paternal grandparents, who played an important function in passing on traditional values and social skills.
