The fascinating photography of the Last Hunter series continues as this DVD focuses on the hunter-gatherer tribe, the Hadzabe. On the east of Africa, the south side of Kenya, the Serengeti wilderness stretches over 4,000 sq. mi., and is inhabited only by the wild animals of the land. The Hadzabe are an ancient tribe whose way of life relies on the customs and traditions of their ancestors, who were hunter-gatherers for more than 10,000 years.
Since the 1950’s, the Hadzabes have been prohibited to hunt the Serengeti, which was an extravagant source of food because the government declared it a national reserve. The Hadzabes were forced to move to inferior hunting grounds to survive.
This beautiful DVD documents the Chief and the “best hunter” of the tribe as they are allowed to visit the Serengeti National Park. They are able to see first-hand, the lush environment and the wild game that they were forced to leave behind. The filmmakers offer the viewer an intimate look at the customs, morals and emotions that these two tribal leaders share with the Paula Palacios who accompanied them. The tribe insists on keeping the ancient ways of their ancestors in spite of the frustration that mounts between them as they tour the park. This enhanced DVD includes photographs showing the beauty of the wilderness and animals in the wild. It is a wonderful way to experience the ancient culture in another land.
