The chapter concerns the specific context of the Namibian case of the Hai||om peoples’ recent court battles seeking a legal remedy for the dispossession of their ancestral land that took place in the 1950s. The chapter demonstrates how bringing ancestral land rights claims in front of a court of law can be a means to enforce the rights of indigenous peoples and shed light on the different issues these communities face after being removed from their ancestral lands.
