Credit: @expertvagabond This is Nn’on’na of the Hadza tribe in Tanzania. The Hadza are one of the last true hunter/gatherer peoples on Earth, living basically the same way they have for the past 10,000 years. We tagged along for one of their early morning hunting trips, where they shot this dik dik and a pheasant-like bird.
Hadza men hunt twice a day to feed their village, using a quiver of different wooden arrows (including some with poison tips). They hunt birds, monkeys, antelope, and more. Anything they can get really. Women gather berries, fruit, and tubers. Families live in simple dome shelters made of branches, or inside giant hollowed-out baobab trees.
I know many people here might not be fans of hunting. I convinced my animal-loving wife @anna.everywhere to come along, but she wasn’t too excited watching the hunt. Anyway, I promise not to fill my Instagram feed with dead animals on a regular basis! This animal did not go to waste.
However this is one of the reasons why I travel. To get out of my comfort zone. Experience culture shock. Understand how other people on our planet actually live, even if you don’t like what you see. You don’t have to like it — just learn something new.
The Hadza live in the middle of the wilderness as bushmen. There are no supermarkets. No hip acai bowl cafes. No opportunities to earn money other than showing occasional tourists like us around.
I’ll be sharing more about the Hadza people on my blog in the future. —————
