Abstract

This paper presents an account of the historical changes in the various socioeconomic relationships between the nomadic San and the rural Kgalagadi. The author's survey results show that the relationships are not limited to goat-raising but also include the sharing of wild and cultivated watermelons and the trading of wild animal skins. The fact that most of the place names in the Reserve are derived from San indicates that San were the fIrst settlers in the Reserve and that relationships were later formed when Kgalagadi migrated to the Reserve.
