This book looks at several African tribes today and their respective cultures, which have evolved over centuries. It presents an intriguing look at the beliefs and practices that have shaped their world from earliest times. This book also addresses the challenges, both historical and current, which have had a serious impact on their lives.
Genetic tests suggest that members of the San Tribe, also known as the Bushmen Tribe, are the closest living descendants of the first man on earth. Africa’s rich legacy was also the subject of research by anthropologists Mary and Louis Leakey. They believed that the skeletal remains they unearthed at Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania’s Great Rift Valley in 1959 belonged to ancestors of the earliest human beings.
There is a variety and richness in the tribal cultures of Africa. Rarely is a culture able to hold on to the cherished past while dealing with a chaotic modern world. The tribes in this book are motivated by their pure roots and a respect for the ancient ways that define them.
