The Deep Water Initiative is launching a new podcast series called, the Old Way, on the 27th of January, hosted by Chantal Noa Forbes.
This podcast will feature artists, academics and educators whose work highlights the present ecological significance of Indigenous traditions, customs and former ways of life.
The Old Way is a reference made by the Kalahari Bushmen of Southern Africa, to an environmentally centered way of life, which they followed for tens-of-thousands of years. This podcast is a tribute to the memory of their traditions. It further pays tribute to the legacy of the Marshall family as told by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas in her 2007 publication The Old Way: A Story of the First People, where she details her and her family’s anthropological experiences living with the Kalahari Bushmen at the end of an ecological era.
