Cloete, Kaiden-Leigh 3A Namibia’s “Folk Culture and Pop Culture.”

I chose my “Ping” country which is Namibia. I chose to do the “Folk Culture and Pop Culture” on this country because I am very curious what there is more to learn about Namibia. I have done some research about the food, art, music, clothing, shelter, technology, and beliefs.

Food Folk Culture:

  • “Potjie Kos”- a mixture of meat, vegetables, sauce and small things you want to add.
  • “Biltong”- it is a lot like jerky as known in the United States but, it is not as processed. It is basically meat that is seared in spices and dried out to become “biltong.”
