[Watch Video] NHW2020 | Museum of Namibian Fashion | Ekori

IMG_1267_resized_20200924_060133688 Ekori - National Museum of Namibia

MAN would like to use Namibian Heritage Week to introduce you to our plan to develop a Virtual Museum of Namibian Fashion. The museum will feature photographs of historical and contemporary clothing and accessories. We will make the site interactive and welcome comments and contributions that might feature in the museum when it is launched by the end of 2020. We will post a couple of items this week to start the conversation. The second object we are introducing is an Ekori .

Listen to Ms Cynthia Schimming , a Fashion designer and Otjiherero speaker explaining, the significance of the Ekori. The film clip is in English. A translation of the text into Otjiherero by Jahanika Hengombe is given below:

Ekori/Otjikaiva
‘’Ekori ra ungurua pomukova omutarazu komurungu nu otukute tokongotue tuaza komukova uongombe mbuațukua nu aukondua. Otutondi toutenda tu ungurisiua kokutja tu handere ekori mehi potjarue marii kombepo. Ekori ka ri hukurua mokati kotjiuaṋa, ri hukurirua moru uto roye oruundikua nu oro riri tjimuna omuzaro uoTjiherero uokotjiuru mbu tjiukua otjotjikaiva, otjiṋa otji undikua tjitji ha hukurirua mokati kovandu. Ekori ra pingenua iyo tjikaiva posiya ovandu kOpuuo ve ri zara mondungiro yarue peke.
Omuhoko uekori indi kaumunika rukuao mena rokutja ua rundururua kațiți, rina ozonya ndatu momatjangua vetja rakuramena po ozonya zozongombe ngunda ape munika oukahu kokutja ondungiro ndji yaza komuti uovizaiyena,opuuzo’kumuna oundovi ouțiți mbua perenderua muro. Uyanga komurungu nu ari riyanga meṋe, tji ri kara uyanga ngandu porive kokutja ri yenene okuhanda kangamua tjimbamba tjiua tjindi kotjiuru. Tjitjiheripo mba ondjise yokongotue, imba opu umuna otukute oture tu tuazeeua noutenda po nambano nai ve unguriza onḓarata ndji izaneua kokutja Ohanga.

Ekori ra nyanda orupa orunahepero nu ari zarua iyo vakupuandu nandarire kokutja ovasukona uina ave ritungu nu noho ari zarua tji uai kotjirongo tjomurumendu uoye. Ekori ri hukurua tjiuazu noku yeta omuatje omutenga kuzambo umuna Erembe oro rizarua mozonḓiro, tjiua zepaisa omurumendu uoye po ove omuni otjomukazendu tjiuațu. Mave ku tuara keendo aua zara Ekori roye arihe embomba nu tji veya peendo vekuhukura Ekori puna ourenga uoye auhe ave yarura kețunḓu romukazendu, nu itji otjiraisiro tjokutja omundu ngo ketjipo rukuao.’’

Recommended Museum

The "Little Hunter's Museum" of the Ju/'Hoansi-San close to Tsumkwe offers visitors the exclusive possibility within Namibia to experience an original hunt, apart from getting to know a very old hunter- gatherer culture.
