In D’Kar we have developed ways to document the Naro language. Naro is a dialect of San languages and is dominant in Western Botswana and Eastern Namibia. However, in D’Kar there has been developments in documentation of the Naro language. Books are written. A dictionary has been written. Monthly magazines are written. This is done in order to promote the Naro language and to also promote mother tongue among the Naro people.
This is one way of making sure that the language is maintained and can be used by the future generations.
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.
