No. 69 - July 2002 FROM THE PRESIDENT A new United Nations body had its first-ever session The United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues closed its first-ever session on May 24, 2002. Secretary General Kofi Annan paid tribute to the collective wisdom of the indigenous peoples. "Among the traditions I find particularly powerful is the respect given to elders as carriers of wisdom, to women as carriers of language and culture, and to children as carriers of the identity that is transmitted to future generations", he said. Representatives of 172 indigenous nations, organisations and groups gathered for the two-week session. - The Forum was established in 2000 by the Economic and Social Council and is composed of 16 independent experts. Soroptimist International membership consists of a huge variety of cultures and languages, and includes also many groups of indigenous peoples. It would be interesting to know how many. Another matter of interest to us would certainly be to know how many different mother tongues we have, all in all. My very wild guess would be around 300. UNESCO had a session on "International Mother Language Day", in February. The "Atlas of the World's Languages in Danger of Disappearing", edited by Professor Stephen Wurm, an Australian linguist of Hungarian origin, says that some 50 European languages are in danger. Experts generally consider a community's language to be endangered when at least 30 per cent of its children no more learn it. In the Pacific region there are more than 2,000 living languages, which is one third of all world languages. Papua New Guinea alone counts at least 820 - a world record for linguistic density. Africa is linguistically the least-known continent. The Atlas says that out of the 1,400 or so local languages, between 500 and 600 are on the decline, and 250 are under immediate threat of disappearing. World-wide, about 3,000 languages are in severe danger. UNESCO encourages multilingualism.

Section > The Society and Its Environment
SOCIETY IS STILL BEING FORMED in South Africa in the 1990s. The region's earliest cultures have long since been displaced, and most people living in South Africa today are descendants of Africans who came to the region in the first millennium A.D. Thes e early populations did not remain in one place over the centuries, however. Instead, their settlement patterns changed as numerous small chiefdoms were thrown into upheaval by increasing conflicts over land, the arrival of European settlers after the sev enteenth century, and nineteenth-century Zulu expansionism. During the twentieth century, several million South Africans were displaced by the government, especially after the country's system of apartheid (see Glossary) invalidated many of their land cla ims. South Africa's turbulent social history should not obscure the fact that this region probably was home to some of the earliest humans on earth. Archaeological evidence suggests that human populations evolved in the broad region of south central and ea stern Africa, perhaps as early as 2 million years ago, but at least 200,000 years ago. Fossil remains of Homo sapiens in eastern South Africa have been tentatively dated to 50,000 years ago, and other remains show evidence of iron smelting about 1,700 yea rs ago in the area that became the northern Transvaal. The evolutionary links between the earliest inhabitants and twentieth-century African populations are not well known, but it is clear that San and Khoikhoi (also called Khoi) peoples have been in sout hern Africa longer than any other living population.

South Africa Outdoors The Eastern Cape, which falls in a summer rainfall area, has its own distinct trails and terrain. Near Alexandria in the south, brilliant red trusses of the coral tree adorn the Alexandria State Forest , and emphasize the stark contrast between the dense coastal forest and sparse dune vegetation. Travel down the coast a bit and you'll reach Tsitsikamma Coastal National Park , a long, narrow strip of high coastal cliffs fringed with plunging streams. Deep within the interior dense evergreen forests clothe the slopes of the Keiskammahoek, Pirie, and the mountains of the Hogsback, the latter often covered with snow. Further east the mangrove swamps of the Transkei Wild Coast , and a visually splendid shoreline cast their own particular spell.

CLICK ON: AFRICAN TRADITIONAL LIFE South Africa is a largely industrial, urban country, and many of the old ways are disappearing. What remains of traditional dance, dress, regalia and domestic lifestyle is largely confined to the rural areas, and is not all that easily accessible to the casual foreign visitor. Other aspect of African cultures - notably language and music, custom and belief - are more enduring and discernible. Special shows and displays are staged for the benefit of tourists in various centres: tribal dancing and other traditional activities in parts of KwaZulu-Natal (Shakaland, in Zululand, offers the authentic experience), on the mines of the Witwatersrand, at Johannesburg's Gold Reef City and at some of the bigger resorts and elsewhere. Around the country, too, you'll find exhibitions of beadwork and handicrafts, recreated Zulu, Tsonga and Ndebele villages and the like. The more prominent venues are to be covered individually on this website. ARTS AND MUSIC see

    South Africa
    Until 1991, South African law divided the population into four major racial categories: Africans (black), whites, coloreds, and Asians. Although this law has been abolished, many South Africans still view themselves and each other according to these categories. Africans comprise about 78% of the population and are divided into a number of different ethnic groups. Whites comprise about 10% of the population. They are primarily descendants of Dutch, French, English, and German settlers who began arriving at the Cape in the late 17th century. Coloreds are mixed-race people primarily descending from the earliest settlers and the indigenous peoples. They comprise about 9% of the total population. Asians descend from Indian workers brought to South Africa in the mid-19th century to work on the sugar estates in Natal. They constitute about 3% of the population and are concentrated in the KwaZulu-Natal Province. Education is in a state of flux. Under the apartheid system schools were segregated, and the quantity and quality of education varied significantly across racial groups. Although the laws governing this segregation have been abolished, the long and arduous process of restructuring the country's educational system is just beginning. The challenge is to create a single nondiscriminatory, nonracial system that offers the same standards of education to all people. Nationality: Noun and adjectiveSouth African(s).

    Christianity in South Africa: A Political, Social, and Cultural History. Richard Elphick and Rodney Davenport, eds. Berkeley and Los Angeles: University of California Press, 1997, 480pp. Cloth $50, Paper $25.
    The book is divided into five sections: The Transplanting of Christianity; The Churches of Modern South Africa; Christianity in South African Subcultures; Christianity and the Creative Arts; and Christianity, Power and Race. Since this is an edited collection, various sources are used including architecture, musical scores, indigenous poetry and oral tradition, as well as primary and secondary missionary and other written archival sources. The first section recounts the establishment of Christianity from the seventeenth through the nineteenth century in what became South Africa. Chapters deal with the rise of Xhosa prophets, Christianity among the Tswana and Sotho, the Zulu and Swazi, as well as the spread of Christianity in Transorangia.
    Part Three draws the reader into fascinating discussions of Christianity in mining communities, Indian communities, women's Christian organizations, and of relations between Jews and Christians. Robert Shell discusses slaves and freed peoples' relationship to Islam and Christianity in the Cape Colony during slavery and under emancipation. Shell's sensitive study draws careful distinctions between the experiences of slaves and free in town and countryside and argues that while Islam was a prime site of resistance to slavery, it declined in importance as emigration and Christian prosletyzing successfully made South Africa a Christian country.

    The Fourth Global YMCA Youth Forum, held in Cape Town, South Africa, from 14-28 November, brought together 36 participants from 28 countries. The young leaders summarised their views of the world today and the challenges for the YMCA in the following statement adopted at the Youth Forum. The following statement is known as "Mizamoyethu". The concept of Mizamoyethu derived from a visit to the community located next to the YMCA campsite in Hout Bay. The word means "Through our collective struggle we achieve" in the Xhosa language. Mizamoyethu is the name of this community, which continues to struggle for ownership of this land.

    African/indigenous philosophies: Legitimizing Spiritually-centred wisdoms within the academy Ivy Goduka, Central Michigan University Back Up Conclusion As I conclude this journey, I would like to emphasize two major points. First, I caution the reader to appreciate the limitations of writing such an important piece of work. Alas! Only some of the many facets of indigenous philosophies can be discussed in such a short space of time and place without compromising the rich and varied body of spiritually-centred wisdom thriving in indigenous thought. Therefore, indigenous learners and scholars in Africa and around the globe are challenged to engage in extensive research and writing to legitimize indigenous epistemologies in the library, classroom, and wherever other knowledges, sciences and technologies are in existence. Such cultures and experiences have been devalued and denigrated in the academy; even worse, they have been treated as if they never existed. As we enter the next millennium, there is growing anger among indigenes and a desire to engage in what Amadiume (1997) terms
