Question and answer
How has colonial and Afrikaner history been commemorated and what omission have been there in these commemorations? What recommendations can you make for reconciliation and equity?
The Day of the Vow (Afrikaans: Geloftedag or Dingaansdag) is the name of a religious public holiday in South Africa until 1994, when it was renamed the Day of Reconciliation.[1] The holiday is December 16. [ Commemorating a famous Boer victory over the Zulu, the anniversary and its commemoration are intimately connected with various streams of Afrikaner nationalism.Disagreements exist about the
extent to which the date was commemorated before the 1860s. Some historians maintained that little happened between 1838 and 1910.[3] Historian S.P. Mackenzie argues that the day was not commemorated before the 1880s. Initial observations may have been limited to those associated with the battle at Ncome River and their descendants. While Sarel Cilliers upheld the day, Andries Pretorius did not (Ehlers 2003). ]
