Wakanda since its early tribal origins was extremely isolationist. They did not invade or provoke any other nations, but if another entered their territory, they would retaliate with deadly force.[1] They remained this way for thousands of years until the modern era when they decided to join the global community. This was still a matter of contention for the Wakandan people,[2] and led to the creation of the Desturi an ultra-conservative, xenophobic group who wished to return to their old isolationist ways.[3]


  • The word Desturi comes from the Swahili language, and means "Custom" or "Tradition".
