HOW EVOLUTION SHAPES OUR LOVES AND FEARS

Whistling for Honey

The footage of the Hadza people used in this video was generously provided by Benenson Productions, from their documentary THE HADZA: LAST OF THE FIRST.

THE HADZA: LAST OF THE FIRST takes a lively look at human origins in the very place of our origins, Africa’s Rift Valley, where one of the world’s last remaining hunter-gatherer groups, the Hadza, have lived sustainably for over 50,000 years. The Hadza’s foraging lifestyle is much like that of our earliest ancestors, and many consider the group to be the oldest population in East Africa. Their way of life, which characterizes most of human existence, is currently under attack – this ancient culture and vital tie to our evolutionary roots may be lost forever.
