Kwere People __ "The ancestors of Kwere peoples migrated into what is now Tanzania around 1000 A.D. from the south in the area of northern Mozambique. They moved into the area with their contemporary Bantu neighbors and gradually displaced the hunters who had previously inhabited the grasslands. Nearing the coast, they encountered the ancestors of the Islamized Swahili peoples."
