In the Land of Ou Makai chronicles the Kruiper Bushman family’s struggle to reclaim their ancestral land and spiritual essence after 120 years of German colonial genocide, apartheid dispossession, and post-apartheid social reorganization.
In the Land of Ou Makai is the first Bushman account of an astounding history of persecution and survival that has only been known from German colonial archives until now.
The film explores the Bushman heritage in the Kgalagadi wilderness through the narratives of Bushman traditional leader Dawid Kruiper, 76, his brother Buks, 72, a master tracker and traditional healer, and their families.
