In October 2020, a group of people representing different Khoi and San Tribes gathered at the foot of Table Mountain in South Africa, where they have created a cultural space where they will stay for an indefinite period of time in an effort to reclaim the mountain. With the temporary huts providing a little shelter, and fire providing a little warmth, they are making it known that the mountain and the area surrounding it had once belonged to their ancestors. Bradley van Sitters is among the folks camped out at the foot of the mountain.
October is pride month in South Africa. We spoke to Denver Toroga Breda, an Indigenous language activist from Cape Town, on being Indigenous and belonging to the LGBTQIA+ community.
