The Basters are the descendants of Cape Colony Dutch and indigenous African women. They live largely in Namibia and are similar to Coloured or Griqua people in South Africa. The name Baster is derived from the Dutch word for "bastard". While some people consider this term demeaning, the Basters proudly use the term as an indication of their history in the same way as the Métis people of Canada. While the current numbers of Basters remain unclear, the Basters are concerned that their unique heritage will be lost in a modern Namibia.
