People Of Namibia

Namibians are a melting pot of different population groups and cultures, united by a turbulent history, a large number of traditions that permeate the Namibian nation on many different fronts and the official language, English. The indigenous peoples have retained their mother tongues, with the result that bilingualism and even trilingualism is a common factor among Namibians. While Christianity has been widely embraced by indigenous Namibians, several cultural traditions are still cherished and practised, albeit often in a more contemporary form.
