We have witnessed at previous events hosted Bronwyn ‘|Xam’ Andrews who heads up |Xam For Our Peoples Foundaton N.P.O. and the Khoi-San Events & Projects company how she has a knack for communicating important concepts of Khoikhoi identity to young children and adults alike.

This event will focus on various themes around ‘Freedom’, how we got here and what is there stll to do.
There will also be a focus on Better Educatonal Choices, Career Choices, Freedom of Expression and Using Art & Music to Heal Trauma.

The Parow Park Community Flats Housing Project aka ‘Die Duiwe Hokke’ with its multi-cultural mix of residents is ideally suited to teach the resident Youth of Indigenous Khoikhoi Descent about their Culture & Heritage, and to encourage them to focus on their future. It is also an opportunity to teach resident children and adults from other cultural backgrounds about the validity of the Khoikhoi Identity.
