The Xhosa are part of the South African Nguni migration which slowly moved south from the region around the Great Lakes. It is largely held that the Xhosa were in the Eastern Cape, when the Khoi migrated to the Cape. These tribes met and lived peacefully together until the frontier wars. The name "Xhosa" comes from that of a legendary leader and King called uXhosa. That "xhosa" was a name given to him by the San and which means "fierce" or "angry" in Khoisan languages.
