About this item

The Griqua people are descendants of Khoekhoe pastoralists, European settlers, San hunter-gatherers, formerly enslaved people from farms of the Cape Colony, and Bantu-speaking Africans, says Schweitzer, and since they emerged as a group during the 18th century, they have struggled for land and autonomy. Drawing on his ethnographic fieldwork on three land reform projects, he discusses such topics as post-apartheid Khoe-San identity politics; between cooperating and autonomy: the Bethany land restitution claim; contested land claims in East Griqualand; and cultural development and economic empowerment at the Griqua Ratelgat farm.
