Humans have hunted and gathered for thousands of years for survival, living as part of nature, without destroying anything. Today, only a few regions are left on earth where the hunter-gatherer life cycle continues. One of those very special places is the Tsumkwe region in Namibia. With footage shot recently, not archival footage, “The Last Tribes” showcases the life of the Ju’/Hoansi San People, one of the extraordinary peoples of Namibia, some of whom have chosen to honor their traditional lifeway and continue to commune with nature.
