Gauteng Khoi and San Council was informally formed in 1994 and then formalized in June 2013. It has over 100 members from different religious communities and ethnic groups. Their hope and plan for the future is to gain constitutional recognition as an Indigenous people and enact the rights of the Indigenous to free their people economically, socially and politically. At community level, they plan to establish councils to look at the promotion and recovery of their cultures, religions, traditions, heritage and language. This CC also works to preserve and respect the environment and natural resources, and especially to retain Indigenous plant medicine and applications and to bridge build between ethical groups in South Africa to build cohesion, establish common and mutual respect for each other’s cultures.  They are international as some tribes cross borders with Namibia, Angola, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and Lesotho, but they have started in South Africa until they can go on to support the other tribes. Their objective is to protect the earth by addressing the root social and economic issues.
