What a beautiful story about the rhythms of life and nature. Many ancient cultures impart this very same wisdom but it is always good to hear it again. I truly hope we as modern peoples can learn and adopt this wonderful love of nature.

Nice job. Thanks.

Freddy is a natural leader in his community with great wisdom.

The western world in a way is not so in touch with nature and what happens when. It is truly part of the older generation it seems. A skill the young needs to study and part of the Shangaan people.

Shaun your story on the Shangaan people is very interesting and they live so close to nature. They take care of the land and are respectful to nature and the animals. We can learn a lot from them and make sure that there will be enough fruit and vegetables for the next year , and years to come.

Shaun, Thanks for this “story’! We have enjoyed getting to know more about the Shangaan tribe and their history, and learn more on each visit!

If only the “modern world” listened to and read nature’s teachings, much as the Shangaans have learned from and adapted their lives to the lowveld near Mpumalanga. Wonderful post Shaun!

Beautiful! I love Judas’ quote at the end of your post Shawn!

What a great connection they have to the land and to nature – something many of us are missing.

I have learned a few (very few) words in the Shangaan language, and I treasure them in my heart.
