Diversity and Community: Finding and Forming a South African Music Therapy
Helen Oosthuizen
Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy , 2006,
Abstract: How does music therapy engage diversity? My participation within three different South African communities offers possibilities, questions and thoughts to music therapists as we form our profession in this country and perhaps also globally. In a diverse, transient community, music is able to draw people together and may help to reconcile our many differences, but can also highlight the fragmentation of this community if all individuals and groups are not considered. As I introduce music therapy to an affluent school community, I find the cultural understandings I share with community members a helpful advantage, and yet I need to consider that by working only in wealthy, resourced communities similar to my own community, I may be highlighting the divide between wealth and poverty. In this way, I compound our countries' struggle with social inequality. As I initiate a short term music therapy group in a community very different to my own, I struggle with questions of whether music therapy has any relevance here, and find myself adapting my thinking, and working closely with the community to form a music therapy practice that has value in this context. These diverse work experiences challenge music therapists to increase our awareness of pertinent national and global issues and the possibilities our profession holds for addressing these issues. We need to explore new communities whilst continually reflecting and questioning all that we do and sharing our different work experiences with one another. Otherwise, whilst our work may hold much value within a particular community, we may find ourselves addressing or compounding national or global issues and may be growing or inhibiting our profession.
Collaborative Work: Negotiations between Music Therapists and Community Musicians in the Development of a South African Community Music Therapy Project

Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy , 2007,
Abstract: Music therapy in South Africa is slowly negotiating a practice that takes into account our continent's musical vibrancy, as well as contextual understandings of "health" and "illness." Although music therapy in the (so-called) developed world is situated within the paradigms of medicine, education, psychology and research - in the formal and often scientific sense - in South Africa, this practice needs to be re-defined to make it relevant to the contexts in which we work. The Music Therapy Community Clinic (MTCC) is a non-profit organisation whose aim is to provide music therapy services to previously disadvantaged communities in Cape Town, South Africa. Socio-political problems such as poverty, unemployment, gang violence and HIV and Aids have lead to the fragmentation and disintegration of many of these communities. The MTCC's Music for Life project emerged out of a need to provide after-school music activities and to reach a wider group of children than those seen for clinical music therapy sessions. As the project has developed and expanded, the music therapists have drawn in community musicians to offer an increasing range of musical activities to children. The collaboration between music therapists and community musicians has led to many questions about the roles and identities of each. This article is based on a presentation given by the MTCC at a Symposium for South African Arts Therapists held in Cape Town in June 2007. The article discusses the merits and challenges of the Music for Life Project and offers reflections from both community musicians and music therapists pertaining to our negotiated and changing roles as we continue to develop the project together.

The military role of the Rehoboth Basters during the South African invasion of German south west Africa, 1914-1915

Abstract: During the course of the South African invasion (1914/15) and their forced involvement in the German war effort caused great consternation among the Rehoboth Basters. They feared that should they actively support the Germans, they could lose their land and their right to selfdetermination. Accordingly, Captain Cornelius van Wyk visited General Louis Botha in Swakopmund in April 1915. Botha advised them to avoid becoming involved in the war effort as far as possible. The Basters, however, in spite of Botha's advice, rebelled against the Germans. The timely arrival of the South African forces in the Rehoboth Gebiet and the resultant withdrawal of the Germans to the north prevented the Germans from delivering the final blow to the Basters. With the Peace of Khorab (9 July 1915) the German administration in South West Africa was formally ended. Gedurende die Suid-Afrikaanse inval (1914/15) het die noodgedwonge betrokkenheid van die Rehoboth-Basters by die Duitse oorlogspoging groot ontsteltenis in Bastergeledere veroorsaak. Die Basters was bevrees dat indien hulle die Duitsers aktief sou steun, hulle moontlik hulle grondgebied en reg tot selfbestuur kon verloor. Gevolglik het kaptein Cornelius van Wyk generaal Louis Botha in April 1915 te Swakopmund besoek. Laasgenoemde het hulle aangeraai om sover moontlik nie by die oorlog betrokke te raak nie. Die Basters het egter ondanks die advies van Botha teen die Duitsers in opstand gekom. Die tydige aankoms van die Suid-Afrikaanse magte in die Rehoboth-Gebiet het die gevolglike onttrekking van die Duitsers na die noorde, het verhoed dat die Duitsers die Basters die finale nekslag toedien. Met die Vrede van Khorab (9 Julie 1915) is die Duitse administrasie in Suidwes-Afrika formeel beeindig.
Luitenant- kolonel Helperus Andreas (Pierre) Van Ryneveld en die onderdrukking van die Rehoboth-baster-opstand in Suidwes-Afrika (Namibi ), April 19251

Abstract: In spite of opposition the Baster Council accepted a constitutional Agreement in August 1923. The malcontents initiated an effective rebellious action by electing their own Council (New Council) to manage the Rehoboth Gebiet. The helpless Old Council finally capitulated. Efforts at mediation by Prime Minister Hertzog were largely unsuccessful, and in December 1924 the South African Government was faced with a unilateral declaration of independence. In retaliation the Baster constitution was suspended and the Rehoboth Gebiet placed under a white Magistracy. The New Council, however, went on undisturbed with the management of the Rehoboth Gebiet. In April 1925, with a demonstration of power, the South African Government forced a showdown and with no loss of life subjected the rebels to their authority. In this military action, Pierre van Ryneveld and his "daring young men in their flying machines" played a major and decisive role.
Die rehoboth-basters en die vestiging van duitse gesag in duitssuidwes- afrika, 1884-1905

Abstract: A coherent group of people of mixed European and native ancestry left the Northwestern Cape Colony in 1868 and in 1870 settled in Rehoboth and its environment in the territory which later became known as German South- West Africa. By virtue of the German- Baster Friendship and Protection Treaty of Septeber 1885, the already acquired freedom and rights of these Basters were to a large extent confirmed. The Basters were however increasingly used by the Germans to assist them in subjugating the indigenous inhabitants. The Basters were furthermore, by means of the Military Treaty of 26 July 1895, bound to do military service. During the period 1893 to 1905 the Rehoboth Basters rendered valuable military assistance to the Germans in establishing their colonial rule.
Bone marrow and kidney fat indices in male and female (gravid and non-gravid) springbok in the Northern Cape
IB Oosthuizen
South African Journal of Animal Science , 2004,
Abstract: Kidney Fat Index (KFI) is the most used indicator of body condition for African ungulates and regarded most reliable. The possible use of Metatarsus Marrow Dry Weight (MMDW) as an alternative for KFI and femur marrow dry weight as indices of body condition for Antidorcas marsupialis (springbok) was investigated in this study. The KFI of males was lower than that of both non-gravid and gravid females. Non-gravid females had a KFI lower than that of gravid females. In non-gravid females the MMDW was lower than that of males as well as gravid females. For gravid females the MMDW was higher than that of non-gravid females. It can be reasoned that MMDW is less sensitive than KFI to variations in body condition, but it is reasonably sensitive for pregnancy. The possible use of MMDW as an indicator of body condition is important due to the unreliable availability of kidneys and kidney fat, as well as femur bones.

The management of AIDS in South African schools

Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 1994, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v59i2.666
Abstract: According to the Third National Survey conducted among women attending antenatal clinics in South Africa, 120,000 more people are estimated to have become infected with HIV since 1991 (Kustner, 1993a:34). Pupils and schools cannot be isolated from this serious health hazard in our country. In this article the relationship o f confidentiality between a doctor and his patient is compared to the relationship between a pupil and a teacher. The question arises as to whether a teacher (i.e. the school principal) should be allowed to breach this confidence by revealing to the staff of his school the fa c t that a pupil is HIV-infected. Under certain circumstances the public interest in preserving human life outweighs the HIV-infected pupil's right to privacy.
