 Jonker Afrikaner
The Afrikaners were part of a larger group known as ‘Oorlams’ – the origin of the word is unknown – who had similar backgrounds and who had thrown off the dominance of the encroaching Boers to form commando groups that survived by raiding cattle which they then traded with the colonists.
It seems that during the 1830s a sort of balance of power was reached, in which Jonker Afrikaner, son of Jager and the new leader of the Afrikaners, established an alliance with the most powerful Nama chief.
The deal seemed to be that the Afrikaners would use their military superiority to ward off Herero attacks, providing a protective shield that would allow both Oorlams and Namas to utilise the superior grazing in the central areas of Namibia without being disrupted and impoverished by raids by the Hereros.
