D’Kar, albeit a small village, displays a mosaic of colourful lifestyle dedicated for the upliftment of their livelihood. Here is beautiful art work designed by the Naro women and men that resemble the earliest engravings of the San. This contemporary art is used to reflect on the culture that was, and which they cannot practice now. Often, the motif presents a lost culture in terms of food and dance as well as the general lifestyle of the San in modern day Botswana. The idea is that the San children should grow to become aware of this art work and learn about the history of the San in general.
I’m a native speaker of Naro from Botswana’s Ghanzi District. I’m a defender of of Indigenous rights and a strong supporter of inclusive social policy. As a young person from a very marginalized group, I have grown to understand the importance of culture in todays society. Whereas I know that change is inevitable, without the knowledge of where you come from and ideals that you represent, can bring harm to the very fight of the right to self-determination. I support all those who advocate towards them.
