Namibian Heritage Week encourages all Namibians to celebrate and commit themselves to protect the country’s natural and cultural resources. As an umbrella organisation for museums country wide, the Museums Association of Namibia (MAN) facilitates regional activities through its members during this week.

In 2019 the theme for Heritage Week is “Namibiab |ō|gauba Sao” which means “Follow the Namibian Beat” in KhoeKhoegowab. The Heritage Week Team decided that each year the theme for heritage week will use a local Indigenous language to promoting pride in cultural diversity.
