Tourism and the San

HOORC has had a visit from University of Tromso social anthropology student Margrethe Haug, who is studying tourism, development and indigenous peoples in the Shakawe area. Haug has spent the past three months observing and participating in Teemacane Trust’s cultural hiking trail project that involves four local communities associated with the Kuru Family of Organizations. Canada’s WUSC has also participated in the project.

The University of Botswana/Tromso Collaborative Programme for San/Basarwa Research and Capacity Building is based at the University of Botswana in Gaborone. In HOORC’s Library, you can find a copy of programme leader Sidsel Saugestad’s The inconvenient indigenous: remote area development in Botswana, donor assistance, and the first people of the Kalagadi as well as The Khoe and San : an annotated bibliography. Vol 2 , compiled by Shelagh Willet through the programme.
