The treaty provides for co-operation and commitment between the Griqwa and Nama in South Africa and the Rehoboth Basters in Namibia as the ‘distinct, non-extinct, Khoisan-descended indigenous and sovereign First Nations in Southern Africa.’
It further provides for these indigenous groups to seek future alliance with the other Khoisan-descended First Nations of Southern Africa.
The aims of the treaty have been agreed upon in terms of the universally-recognized quest by indigenous peoples and First Nations of the International Community as vulnerable minorities for self-determination, democratic empowerment, human rights, indigenous peoples' rights and in accordance with international law.
