Hit song by youths on Ngorongoro heritage – Celebrating African Heritage

BOOK REVIEW – perceptions of sustainability in heritage studies

Book review_Perceptions of Sustainability in Heritage Studies

In 2005 Keitumetse undertook a thesis on heritage and sustainable development at University of Cambridge’s Archaeology department following an observation that the link between the important policy of sustainable development and the emanating and broader heritage studies were missing (Keitumetse 2011 ). Today, it is my utmost pleasure to see several publications like this edited volume coming out directly to address and tackle the link between heritage studies and the sustainability framework. This link is currently missing in scholarship, policy and practice combined, partly due to the relative newness of the discipline/discourse/field/subject of heritage studies across the globe.

We hoped to illuminate the presence and strength of ‘dormant’ community cultural identities, and to learn how they are constituted in cultural values and tied to landscapes that have become re-branded as nature-tourism areas. To unveil these ‘dormant’ cultural values, we conducted ethnographic interviews among the Maun village traditional leaders, Dikgosi (Chiefs), who are cultural custodians of communal heritage, to identify and re-acknowledge cultural and heritage values from communal memory. The aim was to create a balance between the nature tourism identity and the more fluid socio-cultural identities of people. Our results show that Maun village has communal cultural values that can complement the gateway tourism image. This work provides a model for other nature-tourism gateway communities who wish to salvage and safeguard the…
