ProGReSS at the Kalahari Desert Festival

Hennie Swart (Director of SASI) and Sensie Monziner, a member of the Khomani San Elders and the SASI Board.

The South African San Institute (SASI) used the opportunity of the Kalahari Desert Festival in March 2015 to feedback results from the ProGReSS project to the San community. For the first time, the Festival had an “Innovation Tent”, sponsored by ProGReSS, in which to discuss matters of traditional knowledge and its contribution to innovation. The ProGReSS documentary on Buchu plant innovations was shown in parts and will be released on the ProGReSS website in summer 2015.
