INDABA, a Zulu-Bantu word, formed from the inflexional prefix in and daba, business, news, for an important conference held by the " indunas " or principal men of the Kaffir (Zulu-Xosa) tribes of South Africa. Such " indabas " may include only the " indunas " of a particular tribe, or may be held with the representatives of other tribes or peoples.
