5. Ten Year NAMA promotion by Pedro Dausab

1 2The Language Unit of the Western Cape Department of Cultural Affairs and Sports endorsed the process of Nama promotion provincially for 10 years starting as far back in 2000 during the strategic workshop session at “Poem se Voetrus” in Oudtshoorn. This in turn was followed by a research paper conceptualized and finalized on 15 March 2005, by Meester Pedro Dâusab, Nama Language Practitioner and historian Dr. Brink.
