Today, a unique place of learning and sharing, owned and run for and by the San, opened its doors for the first time in celebration of Heritage Day. The new !Khwa ttu Heritage Centre is located an hour outside Cape Town on the way to popular seaside villages such as Langebaan and Paternoster on the West Coast. The centre is a place for the San to tell their stories in their own way. General manager of !Khwa ttu Michael Daiber says, “ The !Khwa ttu San Heritage Centre is a great deal more than a collection of artefacts and historical photos. It’s a pioneering initiative that embraces the principle of community curation, led by San consultants from across Southern Africa and academics. The exhibitions, San-led trails and guided experiences are designed to engage the body and senses as much as the mind,” The centre is open to visitors who can spend a few nights in one of the beautifully appointed cottages. “Khwa ttu brings back the pride in the people, it brings back the dignity in the people, because they are telling their story in their own way. It comes from within them,” says Leana Snyders, Director of the South African San Council.
