Namibia: New Otjiherero Book Launched

Namibia: New Otjiherero Book Launched | The Ovahimba Years - A Multiple Media Ethnographic Study & Cultural Heritage Preservation Program | Scoop.it

A book of Otjiherero proverbs and idioms titled 'Omiano vya Tjipangandjara' was launched last week Thursday in the capital.

The book is unique and of linguistic and cultural significance, according to its author, Dr Jekura Uaurika Kavari.

The book contains over 150 proverbs and idioms from the Ovaherero community, particularly the Ovakaoko and from other written sources.

The book distinguishes between proverbs and idioms and provides literal English translations, the origins, general meaning, context, usage and English equivalents.

"When you start writing, try to create new knowledge. You have to add to existing knowledge," he stressed. He said everything is possible and aspiring writers should not be afraid to make mistakes when they pursue writing.

"Write as many drafts, you have to put something on paper for others to read," Kavari said. There are very few written materials in Otjiherero and other indigenous languages.
