I was able to spend a morning with the Hadzabe Tribe near Lake Eyasi in Tanzania. The Hadzabe tribe is small with just over 1,000 left in the world. However, only about 300 continue to hunt and gather as their forefathers have for over 10,000 years. Researchers concluded that they originated from this area in the Rift Valley and genetics suggests the Hadzabe may be the principal root of the human family tree. Could this tribe be where we originated from?
