Besides referring to the language of dominant people groups in Botswana, Setswana is the adjective used to describe the rich cultural traditions of the Batswana whether construed as members of the Tswana ethnic groups or of all citizens of Botswana.

In Botswana most of the tribes have different ways that they use to greet one another, but for easy communication and connection Botswana use a three way hand shake or one can just greet another by saying “Dumelang” as a way of saying “hello” without having to use hand shakes.

In community celebrations like Dikgafela or during marriage ceremonies Batswana women show excitement and happiness by the use of ululations as part of their culture.
