San Heritage Management Project - The Ju/hoansi bushmen's Back to the Land Movement. From Tsumkwe to Nyae in Namibia, 1987

Language: English

Within the context of the United Nations' Decade for the World's Indigenous Peoples, individuals from different professional disciplines and organizations contributed to a project to manage the archival heritage generated through interaction between researchers and the San peoples of Southern Africa.

It all was done in collaboration with the San Communities, whose representatives were trained to work with audio-visual and textual technologies to generate information and communication materials from their perspective.
