Abstract:This book discusses the manner in which the Herero transformed and moulded their society between 1890, when Maharero Tjamuaha, the chieftain of Okahandja, died, and 1923, when his son, Samuel Maharero, died. Between 1904 and 1908, the Herero were devastated in a genocidal colonial war. The central focus is not the Herero-German war as such, but the manner in which Herero society operated in Namibia in the years of Samuel Maharero's reign, initially as chief of Okahandja and later as paramount chief of all the Herero.
