The East African - - OUTLOOK -

In Southern Africa, Sable and roan were im­por­tant sources of su­per­nat­u­ral po­tency among the Khoi San. But their sym­bolic im­por­tance to early farm­ers is un­known. Rhi­nos were an im­por­tant sym­bol among both hunter-gath­er­ers and farm­ers. Rhi­nos were as­so­ci­ated with shaman­ism and rain mak­ing by the Khoi San, and lead­er­ship by the farm­ers.
