18 Dec Let’s meet the Tanzania Team
In February we will have our second project of “Circles of Cultural Connection”. In nowhere else than in… Tanzania. This time we will be exploring the Hadzabe or Hadza tribe. In order to get to know them better, we will be living together with this indigenous group. What makes this visit even more exciting, is that the Hadzabe are an ethnic hunter-gathering group! There are still around 1000+ Hadzabe living their cultural tradition of hunting and gathering around Lake Eyasi in the central Rift Valley and around the Serengeti plateau.
Meet the team:
Our Tanzania-team of selected volunteers will travel here to help document the cultural tradition of hunting and gathering of the Hadzabe. Of course, as the JNF, our goal is to capture the pride that exists within this community for their heritage. The team will document the story together with this ethnic group, by enabling the Hadzabe themselves to partake and hold the cameras. For the JNF, allowing the visited community to tell their own story is crucial and this will be the case in Tanzania. The project envisions to involve young adults from the community in the project and empower them to create their own creative project. After the community visit, the Foundation will bring back the material in photos and film. We will share the visual stories of “the last bush-hunters of Tanzania” on our digital platforms for you to see. We can’t wait to show you the results!
