This is your Heritage (Day)
Save a family recipe, ask an elder about your history, visit a small town and discover its culture
Amagwinya made by gogo and warm, fragrant koesisters with coconut flakes sold by the auntie down your street. The sweet smell of apricot konfyt sizzling on the snoek braai and the infectious pulse of amapiano at a shisanyama. The stories your elders have told you about your history, and the dorpies and gems on your Western Cape road trips as a kid.
We are South Africans, and we know how to tell stories. It’s these stories that connect us, even when we’re so different. This Heritage Month, join us in celebrating the stories, recipes, memories, songs, and jokes that make us who we are over 10 days, from 21 September to 30 September. Plus, win amazing prizes just for telling your stories.
