WHAT DOES DAMARALAND MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Damaraland

Flag Location of Damaraland within South West Africa. Capital Khorixas Languages Khoekhoe Herero English Afrikaans German Political structure Bantustan History - Self-government 1980 - Re-integrated into Namibia May 1989 Currency South African rand Damaraland was a name given to the north-central part of what later became Namibia, inhabited by the Damaras. It was bounded roughly by Ovamboland in the north, the Namib Desert in the west, the Kalahari Desert in the east, and Windhoek in the south. In the 1970s the name Damaraland was revived for a bantustan in South West Africa, intended by the apartheid government to be a self-governing homeland for the Damara people. A centrally administered local government was created in 1980. The bantustan Damaraland was situated on the western edge of the territory that had been known as Damaraland in the 19th century. Damaraland, like other homelands in South West Africa, was abolished in May 1989 at the start of the transition to independence.
