AnthroWeek7Questions - The Hadza are a hunter gatherer...

This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

The Hadza are a hunter gatherer indigenous group that live in the Rift Valley. There is about 1,200 to 1,300 people who are part of this group. Hunter gatherer societies follow herds of animals and gathered berries and nuts along the way found. They did not store much food due to them always moving and not being able to carry not much over 25 pounds. The way the society works is everyone shares what they gather and solve disputes by a whole group talking about the problem. They do not have social classes and are also an egalitarian community. This means that everyone is considered to be equal and the community tasks are equally shared by men and women. This reflects our evolution as a cooperative species because we see people taking on tasks to maintain the wellbeing of the community. This could have influenced our evolution into a cooperative species because they have assigned tasks like we do today. They keep equilibrium by sharing and allowing both genders to take on tasks and not discriminate against them taking part in some male dominant activities.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
