Description

From the early fifties, South Africa used South West Africa/ Namibia as a testing ground to promote Apartheid ideology and to devise methods of countering insurgency. In these exercises a number of experts, known as ethnologists, played an important role. Linked to the government and the military they carried out research among specific ethnic groups, describing their physical characteristics, material culture, language and beliefs.
