Samenvatting Nkunzi's urge to live and draw others into her sense of interconnectedness emerges as a consistent theme in her story. As a sangoma, Nkunzi is able to explore dimensions of her sexual identity because of her relationship with both male and female ancestors. In Zulu culture a man must be a man and do male things and a woman must be a woman and do female things but with sangomas it is more flexible.

I can do the work of a man, like slaughtering a goat or a cow although in traditional Zulu culture a woman cannot slaughter Conscious of her constitutional rights as an urban young lesbian in a time of a relentless spate of hate crimes against township lesbians, Nkunzi is simultaneously sensitive to the demands of the guiding ancestral voice of the traditional, rural Zulu patriarch whose name she bears. Her quest is for a middle path of balance and integration between the living and the dead, the traditional and the modern.
