Who we are


  1. A small, dusty settlement in the Kalahari Desert of Botswana, where approximately 2,000 Naro and Dcui San people live (thought to be the closest living relatives to the ancestors of the entire modern world). We were once hunters who lived on the Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR), before farmers and cattle owners moved in, and our ways and lives changed.   


We struggle with health and social issues (tuberculosis, HIV, school retention, teen pregnancy). Our traditional way of living has been eroded by urban development yet we strive to maintain our cultural values.     


For most of us, the bright light is art. Art is our refuge, both emotionally and financially.
