OGONI CULTURAL DAY 2013 [26:58]
Ogoni people are one of the many indigenous peoples in the region of southeast Nigeria. They share common oil-related environmental problems with the Ijaw people of Niger Delta, but Ogonis are not listed in the list of people historically belonging to Niger Delta. They number about one point five million people and live in a 404-square-mile (1050 km2) homeland which they also refer to as Ogoni, or Ogoniland. The Ogoni rose to international attention after a massive public protest campaign against Shell Oil, led by the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP). According to oral tradition, the Ogoni people migrated from ancient Ghana down to the Atlantic coast eventually making their way over to the eastern Niger Delta. Linguistic calculations done by Kay Williams place the Ogoni in the Niger Delta since before 15 BC, making them one of the oldest settlers in the eastern Niger Delta region. Radiocarbon dating taken from sites around Ogoniland and the neighboring communities oral traditions also support this claim.[3] Traditionally, the Ogoni are agricultural, also known for livestock herding, fishing, salt and palm oil cultivation and trade.

The Royal Country Inn, Dundee, South Africa - GoHop.ie - Unravel Travel TV [01:18]
The Royal Country Inn in Dundee, South Africa combines the benefits of modern accommodation with an old-world charm. Situated in the heart of the Anglo-Zulu War battlefields, halfway between Johannesburg and Durban, it is the ideal stopover for weary travellers. A home-from-home with every comfort and amenity as well as a convenient base from which to explore the rich history of the surrounding area. Originally known as the Royal Hotel, this inn was established in 1886, just four years after the town of Dundee was founded by a Scottish coal miner seeking his fortune and destiny. Together, Dundee and the Royal Hotel built on their foundations, growing together, and today, the Royal Country Inn stands proudly restored to its former glory. Proprietors, Daniel and Motz Bezuidenhout, bought the Royal in 1999, at a time when the inn appeared more than a touch tired and run-down, a definite "fixer-upper". After years of hard work, creative energy and equal amounts of frustration and joy -- the Royal Country Inn stands proud once again. Daniel and Motz have, however, been careful throughout its ongoing restoration not to lose the original charm and historical ambience. The Royal has a rich history, it even burnt down once and this complex past is an integral part of its atmosphere. The collection of memorabilia, historical documents, old photos and artwork, even replicas of the uniforms of both the Anglo-Boer and the Anglo-Zulu Wars provides hours of browsing and enjoyment.
