The Bahurutshe

Historical Events, Culture and Religion (Traditional and Christian) in Dinokana/South Africa from 1857 to 1940

By Heinrich Bammann

The Bahurutshe explores the history, culture and religion of the Bahurutse in the North-West Province of South Africa. The historical dates, facts, and events of Batswana are informed by verbal tradition. This information attains greater transparancy when the chiefs admit European missionaries into their midst. In this book, Chief Moiloa II plays a prominent role by leading his migratory tribe to settle at Dinokana and including the missionaries in his tribe. The largest contribution towards this book was made by three missionaries from the Hermannsburg Mission Society, who submitted numerous reports to their superiors in Germany. The author, Heinrich Bammann, ministered a Lutheran congregation of the Bahurutshe for ten years. (Series:?Sources and Contributions to the History of the Hermannsburg Mission and the Lutheran.
