One Made by Many: the Recording of Present-Day Kalahari Stories
An inclusive methodology emphasises other-centredness and many ways of knowing including spirituality. It draws on the spirit of ubuntu, kanala and participatory communication towards research that results in a product that is “the one made by many”. How this type of methodology can be implemented ethically in the recording and dissemination of indigenous stories and, more importantly, how it may challenge the spiritual well-being of the storyteller is considered. Three case studies involving the author directly are examined.
