Community Heritage

The identification of provincial heritage is intended to be driven by local authorities. Legislation requires that District Municipalities take responsibility for heritage within their areas of jurisdiction. The municipality is required to engage with the public and provide Amafa with heritage proclamation nomination proposals, which are then considered by The Amafa Council.

In addition to accepting nominations for protection of heritage sites, Amafa accepts requests for assistance from the public to erect markers at heritage
sites, notably ancestral sites. Over the past five years, the Amafa Council has funded markers for the following sites:

Dumisa Great Place
Ndlela ka Sompisi site
