The whole Vatsonga clans

The Vatsonga people are a bunch of clans that share a typical heritage in Southern Africa and are united by language as defined within the Constitution of African nation. Their grouping is analogous to the Vhavenda those that also are formed by a group of tribes with distinct origins who came to be united through the South African Venda language.
