Library Lecture – Patricia Glyn on two months in the Kalahari with a family of Khomani Bushmen

Patricia Glyn returns to Franschhoek to give a more in-depth insight into the plight of a family of Khomani Bushmen when they returned, for two months, to their ancestral hunting grounds of the southern Kalahari, in the Kgalagadi National Park, from which they had been evicted.
It was a moving and memorable expedition during which the two elders of the family taught their youngsters about important heritage sites and rituals. Patricia learned a great deal about their traumatic history and fast-disappearing culture and her latest illustrated presentation is about this journey.  Her book about this life-changing trip is called What Dawid Knew: A Journey with the Kruipers.
Patricia made her name as a broadcaster on South African radio and TV where she hosted news and actuality programmes, did profile interviews, music shows, quizzes and documentaries.
