  1. Afrikaner

    Afrikaners are an ethnic group in Southern Africa whose native tongue is Afrikaans: a Germanic language which derives primarily from 17th century Dutch, and a variety of other languages. They are descended from Dutch Calvinists, Germans and French Huguenots, also Frisians, and minor numbers of other Europeans and non-European slaves and indentured servants. During the Apartheid era, race classification was based on appearance and there were many borderline cases. South Africans of British descent are considered a separate ethnic group from Afrikaners.
