Born in Etosha: Living and learning in the wild

has been written in the first instance for the Hai||om children who today live on farms and in towns outside Etosha, and in some cases in the Etosha rest camps – Okaukuejo, Halali and Namutoni.

The aim of the publication is to provide these children with some insight into how Hai||om children grew up in Etosha in the past, and thus into how their own experiences compare with those of their ancestors.

However, the publication is not only for Hai||om children: irrespective of their backgrounds, all children should benefit from engaging in such a process of self-assessment and comparison.

Written by Ute Dieckmann and produced by the Xoms |Omis Project.

The book is available at the Legal Assistance Centre, Windhoek, for 90 Namibian Dollars.
