PULA

The Republic of South Africa has nine official languages, one of which is Setswana. South African Sign Language (SASL) is acknowledged, but is to date not recognized as one more official language.

The Tswana people, for whom Setswana is their first cultural language or mother tongue, consist of several tribes. They live predominantly in the arid regions of the country where very limited rainfall occurs.

The Setswana word Pula means rain. It is also synonymous with the concepts of blessing or benediction

Derivatives of the word Pula are furthermore often used as a traditional name for a Tswana child. Especially, should the family view the birth of the particular infant as a sign of benevolence from the forefathers.

To the northwest of the RSA, lies the neighboring country of Botswana where Setswana is also accepted as the national language. In this country too, rain is considered to be such an exceptional gift, that the main unit of monetary currency is called the Pula.

All blessings to those who provide the Pula-gift of Sign Language!
