Abstract: Historical enquiry and research in Ethiopia has been for long centered on general themes and historical developments that revolve around the national historical phenomena. However, in the last decade or so attempts have been made to reconstruct the history of many localities from a local vantage point. To this end, apart from some references made in relation to the general historical developments of Gojjam, it is difficult to find the history of the wäräda explained in a relatively detailed way. It is towards filling the gap that the study has been conducted. The study concentrated on reconstructing the history of the wäräda to 1991. It starts its historical analysis for the wäräda by exposing the different developments that wäräda had experienced before the Italian occupation period. Then it tries to discuss major historical events of the wäräda during the occupation period. The restoration of the imperial rule and the changes the restored imperial administration had introduced especially in relation to administration and land relations and the subsequent reactions of the peasants of the wäräda to the introduced changes are the main themes of analysis for the period between 1941 and 1974. The study also tried to see developments that the wäräda had experienced during the Dergue regime. The new regime’s attempt to place its power on a better footing by introducing several measures at a national had its own negative and its challenges and positive effects in the socio-economic and political lives of the peoples of the wäräda are the major areas of emphasis for the study. Finally, the wäräda both during the imperial and during the Dergue regime was inadequately furnished with basic socio-economic facilities.
