In Pursuit Of Divine Design
The Foundation Nation of South Africa, although one of the most ancient people groups, is one of the last Indigenous people groups in the world to be recognized within their own land and they are yet to enjoy the freedom of the Indigenous charter. Through centuries of segregation and decades of apartheid, descendants of the Khoe Khoen were and still are classified as ‘Coloured’. This classification stripped a people of their identity, the heritage of being a first nation and even their heritage of the other bloodlines they carry. There is currently a political, economical and social struggle for these tribes, not just with the powers that be, but also with each other.
It is our desire that our people will come together and learn from other First Nations from around the world in areas where they have been successful or seen major break-throughs. Daily, we will celebrate the reflection of God’s image as we create a platform for the release of the sights and sounds of all the different people groups.
Gathering of first nations and others from around the world to engage in strategies for cultural transformation and to enthrone God on the land with the beauty & diversity of expressions.
