    Descriptive info: The San Peoples.. Formally referred to as "Bushmen," the different San language groups of.. Namibia met in late 1996 and agreed to allow the general term "San" to.. designate them externally.. The KPF website provides updates on the.. struggles for political, economic and cultural self-determination of the.. indigenous inhabitants of Namibia, Botswana, and other countries of.. Southern Africa.. Currently, there are over 95,000 people defined as San in Southern Africa.. Nearly half of these people are in the Republic of Botswana, and a third are in.. Namibia.. Some of these people face economic difficulties in part because.. they have not been able to take advantage of some of the opportunities.. offered to their fellow citizens due to remoteness, insufficient information.. about the availability of funds, or lack of technical assistence.. Frequently Asked Questions.. To what extent are the San people still "pristine"?.. The question of "pristine-ness" is a troublesome, and to an extent, old-.. fashioned concept to most anthropologists.. There is a vast amount of oral,.. linguistic, ethnographic and archaeological evidence to suggest that San.. people have had relationships (trade, kin, etc.. ) with surrounding ethnic.. groups  ...   the only means by which people feed themselves.. The San are often.. characterized as hunter/gatherers or foragers, and to an extent this obscures.. the (much messier) reality that their cultures can be hallmarked as.. extremely fluid.. In other words, people of the Kalahari will turn to.. capitalism, agriculture, horticulture, pastoralism, hunting and/or gathering.. as the situation calls for it.. This is a fitting subsistence strategy given the.. climate of the Kalahari.. I am a filmmaker, documentary or otherwise, hoping to film.. members of the San community.. Can KPF provide me with the.. information/contacts necessary for me to accomplish this?.. Yes, KPF is willing to help filmmakers by providing contact information.. with the local leaders and representatives necessary to film members of the.. San community.. To request this information, please email us at:.. information kalaharipeoples.. org.. and include answers to the following.. questions:.. (1) What is the concept of the film/documentary? Please be specific about.. role of San peoples within the proposed film.. (2) How will local people be involved in the production of the film or.. documentary?.. (3) How will local people benefit from the film or documentary?..

Africa.. While coverage of this.. group in the writings of Richard.. Lee, Lorna Marshall, Elizabeth.. Marshall Thomas, and films by.. John Marshall includes extensive.. information on their traditional.. ways of life, this book continues.. the story as it has unfolded since.. 1990.. Peopled with accounts of.. and from contemporary Ju/'hoan.. people, the book gives newly-.. literate Ju/'hoansi the chance to.. address the world with their own.. voices.. In doing so, the images.. and myths of the Ju/'hoan and.. other San (previously called.. Bushmen") as either noble.. savages or helpless victims are.. discredited..

    Descriptive info: The 8th grade curriculum at Hawken Middle School in Lyndhurst,.. Ohio, challenges all students to make a difference in the world.. Unlike most of his classmates, however, Aaron Kohn did more than.. write a paper or a letter to Congress.. Inspired by a short.. documentary feature on the DVD of "The Gods Must Be Crazy,".. Aaron made a documentary of his own.. Then, he invited the.. documentary maker, Daniel Riesenfeld, as well as Megan Biesele.. and Robert Hitchcock of KPF, to speak at a conference at his school.. in order to raise awareness regarding the issues facing the Kalahari.. Preceding the conference, Aaron organized media coverage on.. NPR, local TV stations and printed press, as well as mounting a.. photo exhibit and publicizing the event at his school.. KPF volunteer.. Catherine Collett also visited middle school language classes to.. give presentations on Ju|'hoan language and culture.. The event was.. a great success, bringing together San scholars, the Cleveland.. community, Hawken students, and attendees from across the US as.. well as Botswana, and raising over $4,000 for KPF sponsored projects.. As a 9th grader, Aaron organized a second set of conferences and brought two San leaders to speak at his school, a local.. radio and TV station, and a university in Cleveland.. Through these events, he raised $5,000 for the Nyae Nyae.. Conservancy, the Ju/'hoan peoples organization.. If your school or organization is interested in hosting a similar event, contact KPF for more details.. "The reason why I chose Kalahari Peoples Fund as the charity for my.. donation which was part of my award from school, was due mostly in.. part that I have spent the past summer living in Botswana in a.. homestay and working with Habitat for Humanity.. I lived in the.. rural village of Oodi in a 2 room house with 7 siblings and my.. "mother".. I became extremely close with them, overcoming the.. language barrier and learnt an infinite amount about the country.. and its situation, including the  ...   Botswana and make a difference, for I have traveled the country myself and met many san who have.. told me their detailed stories.. I have also visited Jwaneng, and questioned people involved in Debswana andknow that what.. is happening in the country must not go unchallenged.. Besides Botswana, I have done a lot of charity work for various organizations including Free the children.. (freethechildren.. org) and CARE Canada's Sudan initiative.. For the past year I have been having bakesales and organizing.. events raising a lot of money for the genocide in Sudan but once I realized the plight the san were facing in the country I was.. to be living in, I knew immediately I wanted to do something more than just live in the country.. I miss Botswana so much and would do anything to return but since that is not an immediate possibility, I plan to continue to.. fundraise more for KPF and send letters to my family at 'home' in Oodi.. ".. -Martha Chertkow.. Michael Marx attends Monte del Sol Charter School in Santa Fe, NM.. He.. celebrated his Bar Mitzvah on Saturday, September 11, 2004, at Temple.. Beth Shalom in Santa Fe.. His choice for his 'Tzedakah' project was to.. support the San.. Tzedakah is the Hebrew word for justice.. Michael's.. decision came when he learned that some San people had been evicted.. from their homeland in Botswana's Central Kalahari Game Reserve.. Five San people from Botswana and South Africa visited Monte del Sol.. School in early September 2004, where they participated in a film.. project with classes there.. Michael's Rabbi commented that he was very glad Michael was making.. the connection between the Jews and the San, as both were exiled from.. their ancestral homelands and struggled to maintain their identity,.. language, and traditions.. KPF is very thankful to Michael for his.. donation, as we are for the donations of other middle school and high.. school students over the years.. Aaron Kohn.. Martha Chertkow.. Michael Marx..
