Wakandans speak a true African language
In Black Panther, Wakandans speak Xhosa (or isiXhosa). This official South African language is spoken by more than 7 million people. The dialogue also incorporates an ancient language called Nsibidi.

The Dogon tribe was heavily referenced when creating the Jabari for the film. The blanket-wearing border tribe is fashioned after the Ndebele tribe.
