The Griqua Royal House and Provincial Women Councils


Many griqua people who were born during the APARTHEIDS years, were born and raised out the the culture and tradition.

It had become very important to keep the culture alive, because with the forcefull removals and reclassification acts many families was divided and alienated from each others. Religion practicing was also one of the factors who had alienated the griqua people from their culture. 


Hence therefor a three day workshop was conducted for delegates of provinces. The culture dresses, preparing of cultural foods and many other traditional practicing was tought.
