A portrait of visionary leadership, this study of the Bafokeng people describes how they acquired their land and protected their customs during 150 years of political upheaval in South Africa. In addition, the book provides a look at the current state of affairs in Royal Bafokeng Nation: the community has plenty of wealth from platinum—and it is the only rural community ever to host world cup soccer in the history of FIFA. Fully illustrated, book introduces the Bafokeng community, both past and present, as well as those who played a major role in shaping Bafokeng society, including Paul Kruger, Hans Merensky, and Christoph Penzhorn from the German Hermannsburg Lutheran Mission.
