Hadzabe Man's Culture is 10,000 Years Old

This photo shows a man from an ancient Tanzanian hunter-gather tribe called Hadzabe. Their culture is 10,000 years old. Yet, he lives this culture fully every day of the 21st Century. As hunter-gathers, the men hunt meat with spears & bows and the women pick fruits & berries. They do not plant/cultivate any other food. This Hadzabe man “speaks” only in a “click” language where only tongue clicking convey meaning. The Hadzabe tribe has no written language.
