Once upon a time…

There were two ethnic groups of people living in Rwanda; the Hutus and the TutsisThe Tutsis were cattle herdersThe Hutus were crop-growers

Do you think that was fair?

Based on different physical features such as skull and nose shapes.

B. Tutsi (15 % of pop.), Hutu (84 % of pop.)

C. Tutsis were the minority elite

D. Hutus were not happy being ruled by Tutsis

Slide12

Once upon a time…

Over the years the Hutus became angered by Tutsi elite.

In the 1960’s, Hutus (the majority of the population) gain political power.

In the 1960’s – the early1990’s, Rwanda had Hutu presidents.

Slide13

III. During genocide

1994. President Habyarimana (Hutu) dies after his plane is shot down. The Hutus blame and set out to massacre all Tutsis within the country. 800,000 to 1,000,000 Tutsis are killed over 100 days (men, women, children, and babies)machetes used to killTutsi people tried to flee

Who is a Tutsi? What determines what a Tutsi is? Who created that difference?

Slide14

Rwanda 1994

“Hutu Mobs armed with machetes and other weapons killed roughly 8,000 Tutsis a day during a three-month campaign of terror. Powerful nations stood by as the slaughter surged on despite pleas from Rwandan and UN observers” National Geographic 2006.
