Abstract

In this chapter, the author looks back at his life as a child growing up among a Bantu-speaking society in which life is guided by Ubuntu values. Ubuntu refers to a philosophy that teaches the interconnectedness of humans and the need, therefore, for people to affirm the humanness in each other, to relate humanely with others, and to work harmoniously and cooperatively as brothers and sisters. The philosophy also teaches us to be responsible stewards of the natural and wildlife environment because human survival depends on its sustainability.
