A unique record of the lives of hunter-gatherers in East Africa.

A study of one of the very few East African tribes living by hunting wild animals and gathering wild vegetable foods and honey the way of life of all mankind until the first development of farming some 12,000 years ago. Their nomadic mode of subsistence is shown in detail and the film emphasises that in spite of the apparent barrenness of the country, adequate supplies of food can always be obtained without undue effort. Men actually spend more time gambling for arrows than hunting and gathering. Made for use in schools and for introductory anthropology courses in universities.

This film was made in 1966 in black and white, so the film and sound quality is not to modern standards. This should not diminish its value as an interesting historic record.
