Summary

We stand to lose the oldest people on earth, the Khomani San Bushmen, as well as their traditional knowledge. Based on the vision of one Bushman Healer and through a variety of programs, we aim to support Bushmen--on their own terms--to restore the health, power, and identity of their people. Thank you for checking us out and for helping us raise the funds needed to bring this support to the Kalahari.

Challenge

Khomani San Bushmen, the oldest humans on earth, are dying at alarming rates. Like many indigenous peoples, they were forced off their ancestral lands and unable to live in traditional ways and they are in threat of extinction.

Solution

Inspired by a Bushman Healer with a vision for her people--the reemergence and renaissance of the Bushmen, the First People, connectors of heaven and earth and all races--we will help foster and fund an exchange between the Khomani San Bushmen youth and the intactJu/' hoansi Bushmen to their north in Namibia, to help the Khomani San recover their ceremonies.

Long-Term Impact

Our organization's aim and the aim of this project is to work with the Bushmen--on their own terms--to restore the health, power, and identity of the First People. Not only will their deep ancestral knowledge of the earth and star systems be preserved, but as they heal, this healing will ripple throughout humanity.
