The people of Opperman's Grounds are represented on the National KhoisanConsultative Conference of South Africa, and are thus deemed to comprise part ofthe Khoisan indigenous peoples of South Africa. During recent years, academicshave been engaged in deconstructing the essential nature of Khoisan culturalauthenticity (cf. Robins 2001, Tobias 2002 and Barnard 2002). On the basis of therelevant academic discourse, at least one aspect has become clear, namely that theunderstanding of Khoisan identity is frequently polythetic, and that part of thisidentity is linked to the local context.
