The Banyankole are among the half dozen major ethnic groups in Uganda. They live in southwestern Uganda, where there is a common border with Rwanda and Tanzania.   The Banyankole consist of two major ethnic groups: the Bahima, who are pastoralists, and the Bairu, who are agriculturists. The Bairu are numerically larger, and the Bahima are politically and socially dominant. …A fascinating Ankole milk cup which is of Ugandan origin, is a carved wood milk vessel, from the Ankole tribe living in Uganda. These statuettes were used for rituals and other important ceremonies and also acted as milk containers.
