In The Story of an African Farm, the Khoisan people are mentioned briefly in the text. Though the novel foregrounds white characters and their own personal spiritual and religious revelations, Fong suggests that the reader attempt to extrapolate information about the rich culture of the Khoisan from various sources. While the text does not necessarily feature central assaults or condemnations of Khoisan identities, there are brief instances of racism sprinkled in casually. That being said, the Khoisan are largely excluded from the text. Fong suggests reading into the brief mentions of the Khosian, suggesting that the brevity with which Khoi culture is mentioned could actually entice curious readers to learn more. One Khoi woman is noted to be trilingual, for example, which suggests she has a rich understanding of the farm’s culture and is able to translate, interpret, and relay the conversations she hears to others. Additionally, the Khoisan people have a rich practice of cultural preservation, and so contemporary sources might be used to retroactively assign meaning to the brief mentions in the text.
