This memorandum serves as an agreement reached between the Seboka Team under the leadership of Prof. Abel J. Pienaar and the Griqua Royal House. An appointed Seboka member will be expected to abide and respect the values and norms of the community while conducting research.
The following are the terms and conditions of agreement.
 The Seboka team is given the permission to conduct the research within the Griqua community, on a mutual capacity principle;
 The conducted research will be based on the Indigenous Knowledge Systems, of which the community will lead and guide the proceedings;
 The team (Seboka) will conduct the research using multiple research methodologies but the primary approach will be conducting “makgotla” with the assistance of a nominated member of the Griqua Royal House;
 The Seboka team will always respect the community and make sure that all the information is treated confidential;
 The research will be conducted by the appointed Seboka researcher, who will in turn sign the consent;
 Both parties also agree that the shared information remains the property of the Griqua Royal House unless otherwise stated;
This memorandum will be used as a global consent for conducting the research in the community. The participants’ rights will also be taken into consideration and be respected while conducting the research. These rights are but not limited to the following:
 Autonomy and self-identification
 Privacy
 Confidentiality
 Justice
 Non-maleficence
 Voluntary participation
 Freedom of speech and movement as it will be an open forum
These conditions were discussed and agreed upon by the two parties (Community leader and Seboka Team leader). The terms and conditions discussed above are legal and bonding to the parties.
