Presentation of P3ICL project at Parliament

In a bid to gain public support and further recommendations for the Protecting, Preserving and Promoting Indigenous Knowledge and Culture (P3ICL) initiative, project leaders were afforded the opportunity to present their findings in Parliament recently, as the project is due to come to an end.

“The Parliamentarians were very impressed with our work and promised to provide us their full support to further the project,” Prof Sarala Krishnamurthy from the Faculty of Human Sciences (FHS), said.

During their three years of research, the team found that three of Namibia’s indigenous languages faced a serious threat of endangerment.
“Due to modernisation, we tend to chase after European languages and neglect our own, thus the overall objective of the P3ICL project is to protect, promote and preserve
the culture of Namibian indigenous groups such as the Ovadhimba, !Kung and Sifwe,” Prof Krishnamurthy elaborated.

The P3ICL team collected stories, folk tales, legends and proverbs. The data will then be placed in a repository at the NUST Library for scholars to access. In addition, the team is busy compiling publications pertaining to the project.

The European Union (EU) awarded the project to NUST’s FHS Department of Communication in 2018.
