A people of the Kalahari in Africa...once called bushmen by the whites of South Africa--the term is outdated and derogatory as most ideas of South Africa were/are. The San are made up of approximately half nomadic hunter-gatherers and half field workers for white settlers. Their culture and lifestyle is extremely simple--caves and rock shelters are used as dwellings. They "possess" only what they carry and use poisoned arrow heads to fell game. They exist primarily as small hunting bands--larger organizations are brief and fleeting.
