dc.description.abstract “Rutang bana ditaola le se ye natšo badimong.” This is a Northern Sotho proverb, meaning: teach young generation the true African culture before death comes. This study looks at how elements of indigenous knowledge are being embedded or reflected in Northern Sotho poetry. Different types of poems and their different themes are being analyzed to reveal the indigenous knowledge in them. The contents of the poems reveal how our forbearers’ knowledge is being embedded in them. The way our African culture and the manner of doing things are reflected in the Northern Sotho selected poems. In conclusion, more research should be done in connection with the following issues:- • Initiation schools (for both males and females) • The lobola (magadi) issue • The Taboo (meila). en
