East of Gemsbokplein in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is an important ostrich hunting ground for the ǂKhomani San. This location is passed on from generation to generation and Jakob Malgas recalls how his grandparents often came here to hunt. Ostriches are an important part of daily life. The meat is eaten and sometimes dried to make biltong. The feathers are used to make mattresses and cushions, and the skin to make shoes and other garments. The ostrich also appears in traditional folk tales often in reference to eyesight and hearing. This image was taken during one of the first data collection excursions into the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Images from this period were key in building a strong foundation for the oral history and mapping processes in the early years of the Land Claim research process.
