expand_more Description

The Hadza are a small group of hunter-gatherers living in the vicinity of Lake Eyasi in northeastern Tanzania. By the early twenty-first century only a small number of Hadza continued to live much as they had a century before: in bush camps frequently changing in size and composition, and with no formal leadership, seasonally moving from place to place in search of game, edible plants and fruits, and honey. A majority have adopted more diverse livelihood strategies due to increased pressures on the land from herders and agricultural immigrants, and the development of ethnic-tourism.
