I HOPE SO! It's very sad to see what's happened to the San people! One of the oldest human tribes....reduced to alcoholism, begging, etc. (Sound familiar?)

Governments and religions have killed off most native groups, making them wear clothes and changing their lives not for betterment of their being.

These people have been harshly treated by their government and are being forced to live a life which is alien to them.I wish them every success for a satisfactory conclusion to their troubles.

I would let them stay within the The Central Kalahari Game Reserve (there traditional living area) but would not allow them modern conveniences withing the wildlife area.

The unfortunate Koi San people have been under threat for centuries and this is evidenced by archaeology and the cave paintings left behind them as they fled into mountains and deserts pursued first by Bantu invaders from the North and later by early colonists in the Cape. As if that was not enough, the relentless pursuit of these people continues under black African rule in South West Africa, Botswana and to a lesser extent South Africa. For some unfathomable reason the expressions “human rights” and “victims of racism” does not apply to many of the most ancient of the world’s peoples from Africa to Asia and on to South America.
