San VC

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]San of Northern Namibia. The San bushmen of Namibia are largely landless – the Bushmen development foundation was set up to rectify this and provides a place for the San to make their home. Traditionally hunter gatherers their way of life has almost entirely dissappeared. Instead many of the San are destined to a life of slavery on Herero and Coloured farms. Prejudice still runs rife despite Namibia’s independence but not necessarily surprising since it was legal to hunt Bushmen with a gun in 1938.
