FOREWORD BY THE MINISTER OF SPORT AND RECREATION, Mr. Fikile Mbalula, MP 10TH ANNUAL INDIGENOUS GAMES FESTIVAL 2015: OUR INDIGENOUS SPORT, OUR HERITAGE: TOWARDS THE IDENTIFICATION, PROMOTION AND PRESERVATION OF SOUTH AFRICAN’S VERY OWN SPORTING CODES AND HERITAGE. The Department of Sport and Recreation South Africa is hosting its 10th Annual Indigenous Games Festival (IG 2015), hosted in the city of Polokwane in Limpopo. Looking back, the last 9 years have provided us with memories of a rich journey in reaffirming our heritage as a nation and truly coming to understand the rich diversity of cultures living on our South African shores. Year, after year, the strategic intent of the Indigenous games gains mileage in success. We continue to identify the rich heritage of the games which we are proud to boast about as being our ow. We are passionate about promoting these games so to instill pride amongst the young and old citizens of our society. It remains our primary objective, to ensure that South Africans begin to take ownership of these games thus preserving the cultural heritage of these games. It is for this reason that the campaign takes a personal accountability and ownership of My Games, My Roots, My Future. After all, these

games were conceptualised and conceived by yesteryear generations. They were in turn interwoven into our cultural practices in such a way that today many attest to their past as having influenced their future as a result of what they learned whilst playing these games during their youthful days. As Sport and Recreation, we strive to encourage participation in these 9 codes of Indigenous Games also enable the youth begin to understand the value of belonging and cultural identify found in the origins of these games. It must be borne in mind that our response is measurable is driven by NDP’s vision of 2030 of advancing social cohesion and nation building

TYPES OF INDIGENOUS GAMES Iintonga This is stick fighting game where two sticks are used, a longer one for attacking and a short one for defending. Age eligibility starts from 5 upwards. Diketo Diketo is a game that tests one’s hand to eye coordination. The game is played with 10 small stones or marbles placed in a round shallow (5cm deep) hole and one hand held ghoen or bigger stone. The game can be played by both girls and boys of any age. Only two players can compete at a time. Dibeke This is a kick and run ball game pitting two teams of twelve players each against each other. Each team must have an equal representation of male and female players. The team captains have the responsibility of liaising with the match officials. Also required is a scorekeeper from each team to count team and individual player runs during the game. The teams take turns to attack and defend. A player from the defending team is deployed in a central role as a roller of the ball and players from the attacking team take turns as kickers as and when they are called out by the roller to do so. Morabaraba This is a board game played with 12 tokens (also known as “cows”) each per player (2 players’ maximum per game). To distinguish between the opposing players, their tokens must be of different shape or of different colour if the shape is the same. Three squares/ rectangles are drawn on the board such that there is an outer square containing the middle square which in turn contains the third and smallest square. The squares are then further subdivided into 24 equidistant junctions with straight lines.
