How was the native African culture important to and/or protected by Nelson Mandela?

The South African activist and former president Nelson Mandela (1918-) helped bring an end to apartheid and has been a global advocate for human rights. A member of the African National Congress party beginning in the 1940s, he was a leader of both peaceful protests and armed resistance against the white minority’s oppressive regime in a racially divided South Africa. His actions landed him in prison for nearly three decades and made him the face of the antiapartheid movement both within his country and internationally. Released in 1990, he participated in the eradication of apartheid and in 1994 became the first black president of South Africa, forming a multiethnic government to oversee the country’s transition. Since retiring from politics in 1999, he has remained a devoted champion for peace and social justice in his own nation and around the world

Why did Japan need to rebuild its economy following world war 2

 Japan had already developed to a high level in heavy manufacturing, steel making, ship building, heavy chemicals and vehicle manufacturing prior to WW2 based on a policy of a partnership between business and government with a high degree of government direction and assistance with investment. With the destruction by bombing of much of Japans industrial infrastructure the Japanese took the opportunity to invest in new state of the art manufacturing facilities. As a result Japan spent a higher percentage of its GDP on investment than countries like the US and the UK and Japanese consumers accepted that sacrifices had to be made in the medium term to rebuild the economy and accepted a lower standard of living in the years following the war. A system of training and apprenticeships in industry was also highly developed and the university system had close links to industry to provide the correct level of trained management personnel. The Japanese system of a 'job for life' plus a comprehensive structured system of training and development of managers ensured that knowledge was developed and transmitted in a way superior to that in Western companies. In a large Japanese company a manager will do a 3 year stint in a particular position at home or abroad and receive close training and monitoring by his immediate manager who he will probably take over from. The result of this system is that 3 levels of management have a detailed knowledge of the job etc at any one time. In the West managers move between companies a lot more leading to a loss of accumulated knowledge to that company.

It's a circuitous relationship, as the Depression did not constrain us into war, and truth be told, amid the greater part of the 1930s made us more independent. Yet, as the war in Europe warmed up in the last some portion of the decade, it turned out to be evident that the Allies, Britain, and France, couldn't remain all alone.
