Many contemporary studies of African chieftaincy are devoted to unraveling "chiefly tradition". These studies have tried to unmask chieftaincy as an artifact of modernist projections of colonial rule, missionary activity, and postcolonial state formation. African chiefs and their authority have often been focal points of social and political power, and in the creation and subjugation of ethnic groups. Research on chieftaincy reveals continuities and discontinuities that are highly pertinent to understanding African societies today.
