Qwaqwa Campus presents Indigenous Knowledge Symposium
2009-11-16

The Qwaqwa Campus of the University of the Free State recently hosted its second Indigenous Knowledge (IK) Symposium.

The event, organised by Mr Stoffel Kok and Ms Zuki Ketiw from the campus’s Library Management, was a great success with more than 70 persons attending.

There was a potpourri of presentations. Mr Magaiza, from the Department of Sociology started the morning with his presentation “Polar bear in the Sahara”, and set the standard for the morning. He was followed by the Departmental Head, Dr Crause. Other speakers included Mr Hahanke from the Department of Arts, Culture and Sports and the Qwaqwa Campus Head Dr Elias Malete. Two lecturers from the National University of Lesotho (NUL) also gave presentations. Ms Lechasa from the NUL gave a talk on the orality of the Basotho and Mr Mosaase, also from the NUL, followed her with a related talk on the Basotho’s indigenous craft. Some indigenous dancing items were also provided by learners from the Mpetha Secondary School.
