Namibia is made up of many different cultures. There are thirteen tribes and each consists of different values and beliefs. These tribes are the Caprivans, Coloureds, Damara, Herero, Himba, Kavango, Nama, Topnaars, Owambo, Rehoboth Basters, San, Tswana, and the Whites. Some still practice their values and beliefs within the region they originated, while others travel to other regions for a number of reasons, such as a better life or seeking economic opportunities.
The Damara people introduced us to a living museum, specifically used to keep their culture alive. The museum is located about 10 km north of Twyfelfontein. At the museum, they taught us how to speak in the Damara language, along with a few other skills from their culture. We learned about their tools and weapons. We saw how they make them, using stones. The women were marked with clay on their cheeks, which is used as make up to embrace the beauty of the Damara. We witnessed how men build fires by hand. We saw how both men and women unite for their traditional song and dance.
