Krämer, M. 2007. Die Topnaar Traditional Authority: Grenzen des Häuptlingtums in Namibia. Scientific Society, Swakopmund, 39(2/07): 12-19


Description:

The Topnaar Traditional Authority: limits of chieftaincy in Namibia.

Summary / Notes:

Häuptlinge haben zwei Legitimitaetsgrundlagen: Die staatliche Verwaltung und die (neo)traditionale Ordnung. Als eine Art Knotenpunkt versucht der Häuptling beide Welten zu verbinden, aber diese duale Position beinhaltet groBe Schwierigkeiten, da es eine Versoehnung zweier gegensaetzlicher Loyalitaeten erfordert, naemlich loyaler Diener einer tiefer geordneten (und fremden) Verwaltung und gleichzeitig Vertreter der lokalen Gemeinschaft zu sein. Diese Rolle als double gatekeeper macht Häuptlinge zu intermediaren Herrschern. Keywords: Namibia, Namib Desert, indigenous people, Topnaar community, Kuiseb River, ethnology, chieftaincy, traditional authority, traditional leaders, traditional community.
