Storyboard Text

  • Mhlakaza
  • South Africa in 1856
  • I believe her because that man is my dead brother!
  • Nongqawuse
  • I just saw a man and he told me that if we slaughter all of our stocks of cattle, the community of Xhosa will rise. 
  • April 1856-June 1857
  • Sarhili
  • I support! Everyone must sacrifice their bewitched cattle!
  • The spirits of our dead ancestors promise that they will bring the Xhosa nation back to its former glory and drive out the British forces. The dead will rise again and start a new world where death, disease, and misfortune cease to exist. By the way, Russia is our savior.
  • WHAT ARE YOU DOING? WHY ARE YOU GUYS PLUNDERING AND MOUNTING RAGE AGAINST US?
  • THE PROPHECIES ARE NOT FULFILLED BECAUSE OF YOU SELFISH UNBELIEVERS PRESERVING YOUR CATTLE!
  • February 1857
  • Famine and destitution was widespread
  • People, don't worry. Just eight more days and the new world will begin!
  • The Eighth Day
  • Prophecy did not come true. 40,000 died.
  • Thousands of Xhosa then migrated to Cape Colony.
  • I am offering an opportunity for all of you. There is a labor recruitment in Cape Colony and if you want to join, you must sign an agreement that you will work anywhere for any wage. As for those of you who don't want to, magistrates have been instructed to only give food to those willing to contract for labor. 
  • Governor of the Cape
