Presentations on the cultures of Botswana

Botswana, Africa is home to the earth’s last hunter/gatherer society, the San Bushman of the Kalahari. It’s also home to a modern society with a democratic government, a free economy, and is the world’s largest supplier of gem-quality diamonds. African Excursions owner Peter Durkin shares insights into this rapidly changing country, and its unique cultures.

This program gives an inside view of the many cultures of Botswana. There are the San Bushmen whose 2,000 year old rock paintings depicting their hunter/gatherer lifestyle can still be seen in the Tsodilo Hills, a world heritage site. Today the San are struggling in limbo between their former ways and today’s cash economy. In contrast there is Botswana’s predominant tribe, the Tswana who are typical of the Bantu speaking tribes that inhabit much of sub-Sahara Africa. The Tswana, while retaining much of their traditional culture are embracing today’s modern world.

The dynamic interactive talk is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation and fascinating artifacts including traditional dance wear, and jewelry made from Ostrich Egg, the old known type of manmade beads and much more. For more information, please contact Peter
