Abstract:Over the past few years, there has been a considerable re-evaluation of the reactions of the Khoisan (Bushmen and Hattentots) to white colonization. This paper follows this new interpretation and examines the history of the Khoisan bands of the middle Orange River; concentrating particularly on the three wars that occurred between them and the Cape Colony: 1832-34, 1868-69, and 1879-80. It shows how the !Kora were able to make colonial subsistence over a wide area of the northern Cape Colony non-viable. The article ends with a description of the processes whereby they were destroyed. Notes, map, summary.
