Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This document is concerned with salient features of Hadza residential groups, which are conventionally described as nomadic bands. It argues against the use of that term because the Hadza, unlike other hunting and gathering bands, lack territorial ownership, institutionalized leadership, corporate unity, or fixed membership. As an alternative, the author suggests the term "camp" as more fitting, because the emphasis is on a group of people who happen to be living together in one place at one time, regardless of kinship ties, a prevailing leader, or other organizing principle.
