James Woodburn is the world’s leading hunter-gatherer ethnographer, and was the first to realize that immediate return hunter-gatherers – those who don’t store food – belong in a distinct category of politically egalitarian people. Inhabiting a savanna environment in the Yaeda Valley, Tanzania, the Hadza are still bow-and-arrow hunters and their traditional ways can teach us much about how all of us once lived. James is a marvelous raconteur, and this talk will be full of fascinating detail about how the Hadza once were, when game animals were plentiful. Don’t miss it!
