Photographer's Note

Les Bushmen, ou Peuple San, sont les plus anciens habitants de l但frique australe o ils vivent depuis au moins 20 000 ans.
Leur habitat est le vaste d駸ert du Kalahari et le Bushmanland.
Ce sont des cueilleurs chasseurs se d駱la軋nt en fonction des pluies pour se nourrir de fruits, de racines et de gibier.
La Namibie compte encore 27 000 Bushmen (ou Bochimans) qui repr駸entent 3% de la population totale, le Botswana ( 55 000 ) et l'Afrique du Sud ( 10 000 ).
Seuls quelques 2000 Bushmen conservent aujourd檀ui leur mode de vie ancestral, au sein du d駸ert du Kalahari, dans l弾st du pays. Ils ne poss鐡ent que ce qu段ls peuvent transporter, utilisent des pointes de fl鐵hes empoisonn馥s pour chasser, et transportent l弾au dans des 忖fs d誕utruche vides.

Pour en savoir plus regarder le film "Les dieux sont tomb駸 sur la t黎e"

The 'Bushmen' or San people are the oldest inhabitants of southern Africa, where they have lived for at least 20,000 years. Their home is in the vast expanse of the Kalahari desert. The Bushmen are the remnants of Africa's oldest cultural group, genetically the closest surviving people to the original Homo sapiens 田ore from which the Negroid people of Africa emerged. Bushmen are small in stature generally with light yellowish skin, which wrinkles very early in life.
They are 27000 in Namibia, 55000 in Botswana and 10000 in South Africa
Only 20 000 have kept their ancestral way of life, as hunters-gatherers
They only own what they can carry along, using poisoned arrows for hunting and transporting water in empty ostrich eggs

To learn more about them just watch the old movie "Gods have gone crazy"
