The khoina

“Welcome to the Khoina. It was the Europeans who changed our name to Hottentots, because we often used a word that sounded just like it. Apparently Khoina means ‘man of men’! Our diet , which was better than the San’s, helped us to develop a larger body frame.

We arrived here from the north approximately 2 000 years ago. Before we moved southwards, we lived in the region that is known today as Botswana. Black people who moved through our territory taught us more about bartering and how to farm cattle in order to survive. The major difference between us and the San is that we are cattle farmers and they are hunter-gatherers. However, our appearance, language and customs show many similarities with those of the San. Contrary to the San, who move about in small hunting groups, the Khoina trek in large groups.

After the Dutch landed at the Cape with Jan van Riebeeck, we lost more and more of our grazing fields. In 1713 many Khoina died in the smallpox epidemic and we lost many of our cattle through various diseases. In order to survive, we were forced to find work on farms and in the towns, where many of our people intermarried with other groups. Today there are very few Khoina left. Most of them live in small groups in the Richtersveld as well as in Namibia (the Nama).”
