Kalahari bushmen

The ancient San people of the Kalahari Desert in southern Africa.

Language: English

The ancient San people of the Kalahari Desert in southern Africa were hunter-gatherers for many centuries until they were dispossessed from their lands. Still nomadic today, they sometimes survive for months on a type of melon that sustains both people and animals in the desert. Sacred rituals and chants performed by shamans invoke rain to help the bushmen in their relentless search.
