This coloring page featuring South African mothers is from the video for the song, “Here Come Our Mothers, Bringing Us Presents.” Because traditional people rarely appear in modern media, we wanted to show Zulu moms in a way that was positive and beautiful. You can see the video; commercial-free, on Vimeo at: Here Come Our Mothers Song From South Africa
“Here Come Our Mothers, Bringing Us Presents” is used in both schools and homeschool settings as a way to celebrate mother’s day with a multicultural twist. The song tells the story of mothers in Africa who have farmed their land and go off to town to sell what they have grown. On the day they return, the children are very good and do all their chores. They wait patiently and begin to sing as their mothers come into view. In the song, they imagine what their mothers may have brought for them from the village.
The song is from the Zulu tradition of South Africa. The lyrics are in English and in Zulu. The song is available is available as sheet music as well as an mp3 download here: Song For Mothers From Africa by DARIA
