    I have been compiling this bibliography in the course of research on the folklore of the Sukuma and Nyamwezi of Tanzania, which I began in 1993. This was part of my research on Tanzania's Epic Folklore, which was funded by Earthwatch, an affiliate of the Center for Field Research, based in Massachussetts.

    The Sukuma and Nyamwezi, who are often assumed to be essentially the same people, are among the most well-studied of Tanzania's ethnic groups. For over a hundred years, there has been a continuous stream of books, articles, manuscripts, theses and dissertations on this group in various languages, but notably in Swahili, English, German, French and Sukuma. These writings cover the history, culture, economic and social life of these people.
    My focus in this bibliography is on folklore and culture in general. I have therefore included works on subjects such as language.
    Some of the works I have included in this bilbiography may not strike other people as belonging in it. The Sukuma and Nyamwezi may safely be considered close enough to be discussed together, but I have included entries on neighbouring groups such as the Kara and the Kerewe, who live on islands in Lake Victoria. I think they have enough in common with the Sukuma to warrant their inclusion in this bibliography. Such choices are difficult for anybody trying to create a bibliography of this nature.
    There are materials I have not included in this bibliography, for example sections in various books, most of which I probaby do not even know about. There are also typescripts and manuscripts which I have not even heard about. It is more than likely that such materials exist, in such places as the White Fathers' Archives in Rome, Oxford House in England, and perhaps in Canada as well, since the priests who set up the Sukuma Museum at Bujora, near Mwanza, came from Canada. Though this is a rather comprehensive bibliography for the period it covers, I know that some more work needs to be done to make it even better.
    I have arranged the entries alphabetically by author. I know that other people might have preferred a division into books, articles, dissertations and other categories. I also know that an index might have pleased many people as well.
    In preparing this bibliography, I have greatly benefitted from Harold Scheub's Bibliography of African Oral Narrative,  R.G. Abraham's bibliography in his The Peoples of Greater Unyamwezi: Tanzania, pp. 81-89, and Michael McCall's, "Bibliography of Usukuma," Africana Journal, X, 2 (1979), pp. 99-119, p. 218-232.
    I am grateful to all the people who have assisted me in this project. These include Connie Gunderson and Trish Lewis of the Rolvaag Library of St. Olaf College, Emilie Ngo-Nguidjol of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Memorial Library,  librarians at the University of Minnesota's Wilson Library, Josephine Yambi, a graduate student at the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign, and Elias Songoyi of the University of Dar es Salaam. My special gratitude goes to Earthwatch and St. Olaf College for supporting my research.
