Welcome to our blog "Pray for the San (Bushmen)". This blog is all about the San, their origins, their struggle for survival and their unique spiritual destiny and purpose in life. It is estimated that there are 100 000 San left in the most Northern part of South Africa, in Central Botswana, in Eastern and Northern Namibia and in the southern part of Angola.

The Hadza Tribe of Northern Tanzania
Africa's ancient hunter-gatherers struggle for survival
Apart from the Bushmen the Hadza Tribe of Northern Tanzania is most probably the last remaining hunter-gatherer tribe that actively pursue this lifestyle as a way of making a living. Their way of living closely resembles those of the Bushmen and their language also include click consonants, giving clues about their ancient heritage. Their language is classified by Linguists as part of the Khoisan Language Group. Like the Bushmen they also face a daily struggle for survival with other ethnic tribes infringing on their traditional hunting grounds.
As part of their Inside Africa coverage CNN is giving a rare glimpse into the life of the Hadza. You can read their article here
