English term or phrase: native pot
translate "native pot" to afrikaan
Afrikaans translation:inboorlingpot
Explanation:
The word "native" is rather suspect in the South African context. Better would be to specify the specific tribe who produces the pot, e.g. Xhosa pot, Zulu pot. In which case the Afrikaans would be "Xhosa-pot" or "Zoeloe-pot".
