Paper short abstract:

The idea is to use this panel to speak to land claims in Canada and the southern Kalahari. The rationale for this link lies in the way Canadian experience in the 1970s and 80s laid the foundation for methodology in land claims work with hunter-gatherer groups. This was then brought in for the Kalahari work in the 1990s, where it had to be drastically adapted. Note: A film, directed by Hugh Brody, on the Southern Kalahari Land Claim, made with the =Khomani San of South Africa, showing the background and process of their land claim in 1999 will be screened on Saturday 9 June in the Film Panel.
