Group of bushmen around the fire.

When someone is sick, the bushmen or San do the elephant dance. Around the fire the people sing and dance while the healer try to communicate with the ancestors. When the dance is finished some people sit around the fire to get warm in the cold nights of the Kalahari desert.
