The most crucial part of the San diet has always been meat. Meat was and is treated as the most important part of the meal. The San know that their food may not always include meat because they hunt during different seasons of the year.
Meat is an integral part of their survival. It is not only for their sustenance but for their culture. Meat brings joy to the people and is able to sustain them for a longer duration before the next hunt expedition. After a successful hunt, meat is equally distributed to all and shared among the families within the camp.
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.
