About Hadzabe:

Hadzabe are an indigenous ethnic group found in North-Central Tanzania. They live around Lake Eyasi in the central Rift Valley and in the neighboring Serengeti Plateau. There are just under 1,000 people left from the tribe. Culturally, they are distinguished by being the only population in East Africa that continues to rely extensively on hunting and gathering for their subsistence.

 

The origin of the Hadzabe:

They have been proved beyond doubt to be the indigenous people of this land of Tanzania who were previously known as bush manoi. The Hadza have a unique culture not closely related to any other people. Traditionally they were considered an East African branch of the Khoisan people, primarily because their language consists of a curious series of clicks.

 

Division of labor:

Women gather berries, tubers and greens depending on availability. They use a digging stick and large skin pouches hung around the neck for carrying items. Men specialize in procuring meat, honey and baobab fruit.
