From disregard to acknowledgment - the role of the Griekwas in South Africa
2006-03-09

The University of the Free Sate (UFS) is working in conjunction with the Griekwa nation on an initiative titled: From disregard to acknowledgment - the role of the Griekwas in South Africa.

The Griekwa National Conference (GNC) requested that research be conducted in conjunction with the UFS on various aspects linked to the Griekwa language, -culture, -history, - leadership, their role in the South African community (past and present) and the conservation of their historical cultural heritages. Four possible research focus areas  have been established, namely a documentary film, the Adam Kok house, ethno historical research and reading material for Griekwa leaders.

A historical meeting took place yesterday at the UFS where the Supreme Chief of the Griekwa nation was present. From left are Prof Frederick Fourie (Rector and Vice-Chancellor of the UFS), Chief Cecil le Fleur, (chairperson of the chiefs council of the GNC), Supreme Chief Alan Andrew le Fleur I, Rev Kiepie Jaftha (Chief Director: Community Service) and Prof Piet Erasmus (Department of Anthropology at the UFS).
