Abstract:The school people were those who had entered the cash economy, possessed some formal education, were Christian, or had otherwise assimilated prominent aspects of European culture. The reds or blankets were less subject to western influence and expressed contempt for the school people. This article examines three aspects of the life of Elijah Makiwane, a lass well-known but prominent leader of the school people: his family history and education, his work as the Church of Scotland, and his participation in politics.
