The Papers deal with Dzivhani's love of music and his training in the Lutheran Mission as a teacher and lay preacher in Sibasa. He translated the Lutheran hymn book into Venda, adding his own compositions in words and music. He was also an agent for the Mealie Control Board. There is much music, history of both education and the church in Venda as well as local tribal histories, court proceedings and tribal matters, his relationship with the White government, also his personal letters to and from his daughter, Ulrica, and the education of her son abroad.
