Introduction / History
Numbering only around 1,000 people, the Hadza are the last hunter-gatherer group in Tanzania. Their daily lives are dependent upon their search for food and water. They are hunters at heart, but today their way of life is being threatened by the decreasing wildlife and the increasing population of farmers and cattlemen. Therefore, when game is scarce they survive off wild berries and the pods of the baobab trees. They consider the food of the land as God's gift to them. They have no respect for things that belong outside 'their world', Christianity is an outsider's religion. Yet they believe in one creator god, and know him by name. They know that this god has a son, but they have not yet heard the son's name.
