Clan Elder

I blogged recently about a clan indaba I attended, where three generations were present. I didn't mention there that there was only one member of the first and oldest generation present -- the last of his brothers and sisters. I took this photo just before the meeting. This old man is held in high esteem and affection. OBSERVATION: In his generation, two Xhosa clans were united through marriage, although I do not now remember which of the clans he comes from.

POSTSCRIPT: One comment I received on this post: he is seventy-six years of age.
