This is just another example of how poor African tribes get exploited by EVIL people who set up FAKE funds/non-profits that are supposed to help the people in-need but are actually cash cows of the dirty/slimy/heartless cowards that prey upon the defenseless. Sungod64
The Hadza, or Hadzabe, are an indigenous ethnic group in north-central Tanzania, living around Lake Eyasi in the central Rift Valley and in the neighboring Serengeti Plateau. … Genetically, the Hadza are not closely related to any other people.
The Fake fund the Dorobo fund has has taken over the smaller funds(Hadza)and put them under the One fund that they can use to make the most money and this fund has been fleecing people longer than the others,it has a better structure to deal with using the Tribes and form a more comprehensive donating tool to get the maximum from the donations that will come in for the content they create to exploit the people. You don’t have to believe me to knoe this is the business model that has been employed all over the African Continent to make a lot of money from the un-suspecting public.
Just south of the Equator, between the soda waters of Tanzania’s Lake Eyasi and the ramparts of the Great Rift Valley, live the Hadza, a small tribe of approximately 1,300 hunter-gatherers: one of the last in Africa.
The Hadza’s homeland lies on the edge of the Serengeti plains, in the shadow of Ngorongoro Crater. It is also close to Olduvai Gorge, one of the most important prehistoric sites in the world, where homo habilis – one of the earliest members of the genus Homo – was discovered to have lived 1.9 million years ago.Until the 1950s all Hadza survived by hunting and gathering.
The Tanzanian government has since made repeated attempts to ‘settle’ the Hadza. Today, only 300 – 400 of a population of approximately 1,300 Hadza are still nomadic hunter-gatherers, gathering most of their food from the bush; while the rest live part-time in settled villages, supplementing locally bought food with natural produce.
In some areas, the Hadza are living in poverty on land stolen from them by their agricultural and pastoral neighbours, in a situation where there has been discrimination against them, says anthropologist James Woodburn, who has worked with the Hadza for decades.
They have lived on their lands for millennia, yet for years have been treated as the lowest in society.
The Hadza have been pushed to the limits of their territory by farmers, pastoralists and cattle herders. We did not plant crops or herd livestock, so most people – including government leaders – considered our lands to be empty and unused, says a Hadza man.*
Their berry bushes have been cleared for crops; forests and bush razed for charcoal and water holes used to irrigate vast onion fields.
Sweet potatoes are now grown near the salt flats of Lake Eyasi.
Until thirty years ago, the Hadza frequently hunted large animals like zebra, giraffe and buffalo in the dense acacia bushland of their homeland Yaeda Chini. They shared their home with rhinoceros and lion, elephant and large herds of savannah animals.
Most large mammals have now decreased greatly in number so that today the Hadza mostly hunt dik-dik (a small antelope), monkeys, bush pig, warthog and impala, with occasional eland and kudu.
Knife sheaths can be made from impala skin, with the scent gland from the leg visible. Hadza also make bags from dik-dik leather, which are used to carry knives, pipes, tobacco and arrowheads.
The Hadza accumulate very few material possessions; those they do have are frequently distributed: sharing is fundamental to their ethos.
As a Hadza, if you have more personal possessions – bows, arrows, stone pipes – than you have immediate use for, then you should share them. Wild honey – which constitutes a substantial part of the Hadza diet – is also shared.
Hunters follow the honeguide bird to a wild hive. The bird calls to the hunters, who whistle back to it. It flits from tree to tree, stopping to wait for hunters to catch up, so leading them to a bees’ nest often high in the reddish-grey boughs of an ancient baobab tree.
The Hadza have a very intimate relationship with the honeyguide, and they’ll whistle a certain way to attract it and let it know they are listening says Daudi Peterson, Safari guide and Founder of the Ujamaa Community Resource Team and the Dorobo Fund.
Some trees have been harvested repeatedly by the Hadza for hundreds of years.Hadza women left camp most mornings with digging sticks, which they used to dig up deep tubers. They searched for roots, tubers, berries and fruit such as Baobab, Grewia, Cordia and Salvadora.
We Hadzabe have no record of famine in our oral history, they say. The reason is that we depend on natural products of the environment … by living in this way, the environment we depend on is not damaged and remains healthy.The Hadza value equality highly, recognising no official leaders.
Hadza women have a great amount of autonomy and participate equally in decision making with men.Land is our biggest problem, says Richard Baalow, a Hadza man. We need people like Survival to keep on working for us.
Loss of land deprives us of our cultural identity and the means to move with dignity into the future world.
To the Hadza, sharing is not an act of generosity, It is a moral obligation to give what you have without expectation of return.
The Hadza have probably lived in the Yaeda Chini area for millennia. Genetically – like the Bushmen of southern Africa – they are one of the ‘oldest’ lineages of humankind.
They speak a click language that is unrelated to any other language on earth.
Over the past 50 years, however, the tribe has lost 90% of its land.
Here’s how this simple so-called fund to help the Hadza People started. They knew that they were only going to do this to make some money off of people they really didn’t give a fuck about.
Since starting the Hadza Fund in 2011, we have raised nearly $10,000 to provide health screening and medical care to Hadza living in the Lake Eyasi Region. We thank everyone who donated and made the 2011 and 2012 fundraisers a success!
From June 2012-March 2013, our team, led by Nurse Ruth Matiyas, has carried out regular camp visits to all of the Hadza living in the Mangola area. During camp visits, Ruth and assistants provide health education to all, and seek to help diagnose or treat those Hadza with health challenges. When necessary, Ruth transports the sick to the Hhando Medical Clinic in Barazani or to regional hospitals, and the Hadza Fund picks up the bill for transport and patient expenses. Through these combined efforts, we have provided for the care and treatment of 51 patients. The conditions treated include STDs, broken bones, an ecotopic pregnancy, malaria, hepatitis, and TB. Our work has led to a greater awareness of the risks of HIV-transmission, and several Hadza have begun antiretroviral therapy supported by the Hadza fund.
From May-August of 2013, Dr. Brian Wood will be conducting a follow-up census of the Eastern Hadza, working hand-in-hand with Ruth in Mangola. Together, they will administer a survey to determine the most common illnesses and sources of mortality in the area. These research efforts will help us tailor future Hadza Fund projects to provide the most effective assistance.
ALL these people involved had their hands in the pot,they mis-managed the money,every one got paid and the Hadza people got nothing in return! The area now is a Tourist spot and there is no mention of money being used to help the people because the plan from the start was to exploit these people run them from their land and use it for there own personal gratification.The website and news letter hasn’t been updated since 2012, july 2013 was the last news letter that was posted.
