Die ontstaan van Erfenisdag


Theme – “Our indigenous knowledge, our heritage: Towards the identification, promotion and preservation of South Africa’s living heritage” MET die oorgang na ’n nuwe Suid-Afrika het die Suid-Afrikaanse regering besluit dat daar ’n dag (24 September) moes wees waarop Suid-Afrikaners, van watter bevolkingsgroepe ook al, hul eie erfenis moes gedenk.

Die doel is ook om veral die jeug aan te moedig om Suid-Afrikaners se gedeelde erfenis in ere te hou. Erfenis is al omskryf as “dit wat ons geërf het: die somtotaal van die natuurlewe en natuurskoon,Read more…
