Chapter 3 endnote 13, from How Emotions are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain by Lisa Feldman Barrett.
Some context is:

Visiting the Himba was no simple task. Maria and Debi flew to South Africa and then drove for about twelve hours to their base camp in Opuwo, northern Namibia.

Our other collaborators were Marieta van der Vyver who was then on faculty at the University of Namibia, and Kemuu Jakara, our translator. Kemuu conducted extensive translation work in Namibia with more than 12 years of experience working as a guide and translator for various academics, including for Sauter et. al.[1] Unfortunately, he has since passed away. We were fortunate to have additional translation assistance from Nduvaa Erna Nguaiko.
