New in HOORC's Library: Shiyeyi writing system

Mutjango wu Shiyeyi = Shiyeyi writing system / by Andy Monthusi Chebanne, Mike Rodewald and Lydia Nyati-Ramahobo is a newly published orthography that aims to provide an understanding of the history of the Wayeyi people, long time inhabitants of the Okavango Delta region.

The book describes the history of writing the Shiyeyi language and how Shiyeyi should be written. A product of ten years of research, Mutjango wu Shiyeyi has been produced as a collaboration between the Botswana Society and the Kamanakao Association. You can find the book in HOORC's Library.
