This website is a repository for the #Khomani San community’s history, ongoing story and a place to share its cultural heritage.
In 1999 after years of dispossession under colonisation and apartheid, the #Khomani San successfully won a land claim.
In 2017, the #Khomani San Heritage site was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO.
The website will be a space to share life stories, ,oral histories, places of significance, historic events, traditional and indigenous uses of plants, animals, craft-making, tales, folklore, and the wisdom of their leaders and ancestors.
The San are one of the most documented people on the planet. Questions are asked about they have been represented. Here are a selection of films taken by outsiders who have documented the San, as well as insiders i.e. the community filmmakers themselves, telling their own stories.
