Full film record shot during an expedition to the Nyae-Nyae region of the Kalahari Desert in Namibia, sponsored by the Harvard Peabody Museum and the Smithsonian Institution.

Other footage documents: technologies (net making and the manufacture of string, arrows, and poison), distribution of meat and sociability around skerms (shelters), divining with oracle discs, trance-dancing and curing, nursing babies, making toy cars, "rolling" fire with firesticks, playing musical instruments (one-string violin and //uashie), and activities around waterholes. Also included is footage on the Mutues, a Bantu-speaking people of Angola. The published titles THE HUNTERS, RITE OF PASSAGE, and !KUNG BUSHMEN HUNTING EQUIPMENT were produced from this project.
