50,000 Years of Resilience May Not Save This Tribe (Washington Post)

EXCERPT: “One of the last remaining tribes of hunter-gatherers on the planet is on the verge of vanishing into the modern world. The transition has been long underway, but members of the dwindling Hadzabe tribe, who now number fewer than 1,500, say it is being unduly hastened by a United Arab Emirates royal family, which plans to use the tribal hunting land as a personal safari playground…While they have through 50,000 years survived the coming of agriculture, metal, guns, diseases, missionaries, poachers, anthropologists, students, gawking journalists, corrugated steel houses and encroaching pastoral tribes who often impersonate them for tourist money, the resilient Hadzabe, who still make fire with sticks, fear that the safari deal will be their undoing. “If they are going to come here, we definitely will all perish,” said Kaunda, a Hadzabe man who prefers khakis but still hunts with hand-hewn poison arrows. “Our history will die, and the Hadzabe will be swept off the face of the world. We are very much afraid.”
