Bantu Knot Style ( History)
Bantu knots can be traced back to the 2nd millennium BCE through 1500 CE to what at the time was the Bantu-speaking community that originated from Southern West Africa and spread out through Central, Eastern, and Southern Africa during the Bantu migration.
The hairstyle has seen various iterations since then but is still a go-to for black women all over the world, notably those who wear their hair in a naturalistic fashion. They are a prominent depiction of women in the community sporting a natural hairdo, transmitted from generation to generation, and are proudly worn by African ladies of certain cultural groupings. Although many African-Americans are unaware of this hairstyle of African ancestry, it is a great accomplishment that this heritage and way of life are being practiced in our families and communities today.
