Just over 2 million people live in Botswana, and half of these are Tswana, who speak the language Setswana. The meaning of the name “Tswana” is unknown, but believed to be the Xhosa word for “same” or “similar.”  Khama the Great brought many Tswana tribes together and built a united Botswana, and England protected the northern Tswana from being incorporated into South Africa.  In 1966, Botswana gained independence from England.  Today, the Tswana make up about half the population in Botswana, while many others can be found in South Africa and Namibia.
