Danye - Desert Diaries

><
DESERT DIARIES is the story of two San (Bushmen) children - !Nanni and Tamme.  
Over a century ago they travelled from the northern borders of Botswana to Cape Town and were taken into custody. Two pioneering linguists took them into their care in 1880 and asked the youngsters to record as much as possible about the plants they used, the animals they encountered and the folk tales that they had grown up with. What they created is known today as one of the most important ethnographic archives of the Ixam San.

This is a beautifully poetic textile collection on linen, created by Amanda du Plessis, based on this story.
