Market to find ourselves

2015-06-09 06:00

Take a day to remember just how rich your heritage (and culture) really is.

The Wie is Jy? Collective presents its first monthly Leka mal bizarre on Saturday.

The event promises to take visitors on a journey to discover the rich history of the city’s indigenous people by bringing together a mix of local food and drink, locally produced clothes and toys, as well as a day filled with top-quality local entertainment.

The Wie is Jy? Collective, a group of activists and other locals from various communities and backgrounds who came together to “share our life experiences”, launched on 6 April.

Sindi Sampson, a member of the collective, says the Leka mal bizarre is a celebration of the indigenous people of Cape Town, or //Hui !Gaeb as it was originally known to the Khoisan people who called this area home.

“With our offerings, we want to educate people about their rich past and explore the struggles that were endured, with the goal of empowering people with a proud know­ledge of their history,” she says.

“It is through coming together at events like these, that South Africans are able to break the shackles of our apartheid past and start a journey to rediscover and express our indigenous African identity.”

The Leka mal bizarre event focuses on locally produced offerings, as well as quality local entertainment. The programme includes a video documentary booth which will share and explore stories of the struggles and triumphs of the Khoisan. You can also touch-up on your indigenous language skills at the Khoi Khoi language stall.

The event will also have a herbal medicine stall, which will be run by traditional healers Carlo Randalls and Paul Searle, where you can learn about indigenous healing methods.

The event will take place at the Slave Church at 40 Long Street from 09:00 to 16:30. Entry is free. Contact Lucy on 084 883 2514 or lucellecambell@gmail.com
