n Historia - Luka Jantjie : Resistance Hero of the South African Frontier, Kevin Shillington : book review




Throughout the book under review, Luka Jantjie is referred to as Luka: his father was "Jantjie". Luka was born c. 1835 to parents of "mixed Batlhaping-Korana ancestry" - the latter a branch of Khoisan who settled amongst the Batlhaping, southernmost of the Batswana. Both parents were descendants of Chief Mothibi (1772-1845) and thus were cousins. On Jantjie's death in 1881, Luka became chief, or kgosi, of one branch of the Batlhaping.
