The history of the Hereor-speaking people of Namibia is a complex one, fraught with conflict. The last 200 years have witnessed clashes with other tribes over land and a brutal campaign of genocide waged against them by the German colonists. More recently they became unwillingly embroiled in the Namibian War of independence. This episode of “On Track” takes a look at these dispersed pasturalists and what the future has in store for them.
