Blacksmith: culture handmade spears were made by Mr. Khor Deng Dey in Nasir South Sudan on March 2018. Khor was born and raised in village of Jikmier the former British military base during World War II which is located near the border between South Sudan, and Ethiopia. Mr. Khor grew up obsesses with becoming a blacksmith at age of 12 and he became professional in age of 15. Blacksmith originally was generated from our decedents and the legacy has been carrying on by great grandchildren through naming kids as Khor’s last name “Dey” you have seen above, it mean Anvil/Dey in tribal language and it’s referring to fire scale.
The purpose of this article is to provide explanation for the five original handmade Nuer spears. The role of our ancestors in the past and present, they worked with tools and techniques utilized. It was of high standing in the village to help the villagers with a tools to use for hunting, cultivating, fishing, and repairing household’s items. Our ancestors past on the trade of village blacksmith to children genetically and Khor is one of them in that category. While these items are replicas of true Nuer tribe spears, they are not actual historical artifacts.
These enclosed African Nuer tribal spears were handmade in all historical aspects of the Nuer culture and represent generations of African traditions. Making a spears, and repairing the other items for households mean being proficient in several trades, woodworking, and metalworking.
Blacksmith is old technology but it’s one of the easier types of job which should be compared with welding. In United States, there is a well-known company is call “John Deere”, it found since 1835 by Deere, the all farmers are still using its equipment for cultivation farms. In U.S.A, many colleges offer bachelors or Master’s degree, and that should be same thing to other country like South Sudan, they can offer courses to those who needed because it can help an aspiring blacksmith skill to next generations. The spears you have seen above were made through the request from Khor’s younger brother Komach who lives in USA. The purpose is to show the culture to our kids who were born and raised in United States. In the past, our family did not learned blacksmith educationally but it may happen to this generation to learn it from school and modernize to modern technology. By Komach
