INVITATION TO THE RE-LAUNCH OF KARA HERITAGE SCHOOL

Kara Heritage Institute invites you to the re-launch of Kara Heritage School. 

Kara Heritage Institute participates in Maphungubwe Legacy Project

The thousand year old Iron Age Site, Maphungubwe in Limpopo Province, was the location for a Heritage Indaba held on June 5 and 6 2015 to launch the Maphungubwe Legacy Project.

The Heritage Indaba brought together government departments, municipalities, civil societies, traditional leaders and health practitioners to engage on heritage matters and develop common strategies to preserve and develop our heritage resources.

The Indaba was hosted by the  Maphungubwe Heritage Foundation in partnership with the Department on Arts and Culture, Environmental Affairs, National Heritage Council of South Africa, South African National Parks, South African Heritage Resources Agency and Kara Heritage Institute.  Dr Mathole Motshekga, Director of the Kara Heritage Institute, explained that one objective of the Maphungubwe Legacy Project is to promote, protect, manage, conserve and preserve heritage resources as defined by the National Heritage Resources Act, 25 of 1999.

“The aim of the project is to identify and record all heritage sites and living heritage within the Maphungubwe Cultural Landscape situated in the North Eastern Region of Limpopo province, notably the Vhembe and Mopani districts,” he said.

The expected outcomes of the Legacy Project include the publication of a Heritage Register and Guide. 

Invitation to the Launch of the Maphungubwe Legacy Project and Heritage Indaba

The Maphungubwe Heritage Foundation, in partnership with the Department of Arts and Culture, takes pleasure to invite you to the launch of Maphungubwe Legacy project and Heritage Indaba as part of the Africa month celebrations.  The Africa month programme, led by the Department of Arts and Culture, was announced by President Jacob Zuma recently.

The primary objectives of the Maphungubwe Legacy project are:

  • Promoting, protecting, managing, conserving and preserving heritage resources as defined by the National Heritage Resources Act, 25 of 1999.
  • Identify and record all heritage sites and living heritage (both tangible and intangible) within the Maphungubwe Cultural Landscape situated in the North-Eastern Region of Limpopo province, notably, the Vhembe and Mopani districts.

The expected outcomes of the project include the publication of a Heritage Register and Guide.

The Maphungubwe Legacy project was conceived in accordance with the Local Authority’s mandate under section 8 of the National Heritage Resources Act, 25 of 1999 which provides for the identification development, promotion management, conservation and preservation of heritage resources in the areas of their jurisdiction.

Most heritage sites are under threat from communities, the public and private sector.  The sector is critically under-budgeted and under-resourced to implement sound management strategies.  The heritage sites are also under threat from public works and the private sector who are not aware of and/or do not respect the sacred nature of heritage sites.

The Heritage Indaba which will be held on 05 June will bring together government departments, municipalities, civil society, traditional leaders and health practitioners to engage on heritage matters and develop common strategies to preserve and develop our heritage resources.

The spiritual and cultural festival on 06 June will afford traditional communities to display their praise songs, poetry, traditional (and spiritual) music and dance which embody and convey spiritual and cultural values to the youth and children.  This living heritage will be recorded, documented and harnessed for spiritual cultural and moral regeneration in pursuit of the African Cultural renaissance.

Being Afrikan Dialogue Series 27 MAY 2015

" My voice is not the only one: Unless we as Afrikans rediscover ourselves, our roots and heritage, and embrace and understand -even love-everything that made our ancestors survive and thrive for thousands of years, unless we understand how our ancestors succeeded so well in creating a dynamic society in the past , we cannot create a new modern Afrikan society.

 

The event took place at Moses Mabhida Stadium on the 27 May 2015
