Lecture Next Week


Isaac Gowaseb will give a lecture on the traditions, culture and history of the Khoekhoen, also known as the “Nama”, at the FNCC on Wednesday 13 September at 18h00. Many questions will be addressed, including the origin of the word “Nama” and who or what it might have signified. Formerly the executive producer at the Damara/Nama Service of the South West African Broadcasting Corporation (SWABC), Gowaseb is currently the translator in the Damara/Nama language at the NBC. He is also a Senior Councillor of the Afrikaner Traditional Authority and the Chairperson of the Hardap Communal Land Board.
