The bushmen once ranged over the entire continent, but they were displaced by Bantus pushing south. They took refuge in the Kalahari and namib deserts long before the arrival of the Europeans. Those who did not reach safety in the desert were exterminated or enslaved by the Bantus and the white people. It’s not surprising that the majority have alcohol problems.
Luckily there are still some families holding onto their culture and traditions… including their hunting methods.
Their most powerful weapon comes from under ground. Using metal bars they dig holes looking for the round objects that they’ll use to prepare a powerful poison. Back at camp, the men prepare to make the poison mixture. Then they chew the roots of the poisonous sansevieria plant and mix the resulting paste with the insides of the larvae and the seed powder, producing a liquid powerful enough to kill anything. All that’s left is to apply the poison to some arrows.
With the performance of the appropriate ritual, the spirits will show the way to find game. This is considered necessary in order to bring good luck and keep bad spirits away.
The hunt has begun.
They have hit a male oryx. If the arrow has hit a sensitive area, such as the neck or the lungs, the oryx will fall down dead in a matter of hours, but if not, the slow chase can go on for several days. The arrow punctured the oryx’s left lung, resulting in a slow, painful death. The Bushmen are, in fact, extremely respectful of their natural environment, as many anthropologists have pointed out. This meat will provide enough food for a couple of weeks. They preserve it by smoking, and it belongs to the community as a whole.

Wish I was born a Bushman. Just a good simple life
"Share your Kill" ! Words I live by
Super super good welcome to
they are still living like we lived tens of thousands of years ago. The christians dont understand this because they think the world is about four thousands years old. These people prove christian dating to be wrong which in actual fact means the bible is wrong likewise the caves that were recently found in South africa prove also it.
They’re chewing the poisonous plant??
They have a simple happy life. And they are wonderful.
Pre-humans are still alive.
I was shook when i saw them wearing modern shoes
You think we are stupid, we know the truth and it won’t be nice when we tell it as it is.
this video had NOT much facts… anf was very poor edited
Any free fire player???
Where is Xi?
This is how humanity survived for hundreds of thousands of years. It’s amazing to see it in real life. Without modern world intrusion, these people can live like this till the end of time.
Vry gd infn tnk
Using poison to kill their prey, I studied that and it was said that using poison is considered part of the “noble savage” so honestly I can’t tell whether this documentary is telling a lie or not
Who else is here because of the Otherland series by Tad Williams?

Kalahari Bushman tribes.
That is a motley Crue at the end…lol.
And their poisonous arrows.
New map in free fire
These people should be given our bows and arrows. Look at how primitive their bows are. There is however a risk that the animals would become more scarce because of mating their skills with our technology. They have instead developed the arrow because of easy available acess to effective poisons.. We didnt have their types of poisons which made us develop the bow instead.
0% pollution ❤️
They are more evolved than most blacks I know in America.
Good looking people.
Horrible commentary. What was that nut they got the bug from? What was the bug called? What was the poison? What does it do? What did they stop to rub themselves down with and what does it do for them? What about the poison? Why is the meat safe to eat?
snarky and condescending.
And then, they invent the wheel.
The Gods Must be Crazy!
Free fire new map he
I never understand how they are so comfortable with camera crews
This video sucks with its Western Lens…
Asian people before they were the Asians we know today.
This is free fire map
1:53 Very sophisticated culture right there. Smart African people. Great Inventors and brilliant mathematicians.
I once read that bushmen have more freetime than any other society in the world. We like to think that modern technology saves time. It could be opposite.
