San Fight for Right to Indigenous Land in Namibia
Cattle may be the last act for some of humanity’s first people, the Ju|’hoansi. This picture essay tells the story of the Nyae Nyae Conservancy. Located in remote northeastern Namibia, close to the Botswana border, the 9000km2 Nyae Nyae Conservancy is one of the last two remaining San lands.
