Jantjies’ webseries Stories in die Wind (Stories in the Wind) is reviving pride in culture for youth. In her animation, illustrated by Dav Andrew and animated by Clinton Jones, she retells the Nama folktale of a girl who has been given her purpose – to save her people and their land through her ability to communicate with the rain. Times of drought would have been devastating to the Khoena people as they relied on animals and farming for their livelihoods and food. Available with Nama subtitles, the series illustrates the essential role these fables play in protecting culture. “Just because the world around us is changing doesn’t mean that we should forget about who we are,” Jantjies says.
