Mphatheleni Makaulule on the value of Indigenous Knowledge

"It still all comes back to identity. An African clay cooking pot represents resilience and it represents the Elders of a community. You have to go through fire to become strong and wise! The clay pot gets better the more times it is used to cook with. The Elders have gone through a great deal to gain the wisdom and knowledge that they hold. We must ensure that it isn't lost forever."
