Once We Were Hunters

by Paul Weinberg


Photographs: Paul Weinberg

Publisher: David Phillip in South Africa and Mets and Schilt Internationally

Year: 2000

Price: 25

Comments: slight signs of wear on cover sleeve

Once We Were Hunters is a book (and travelling exhibition) that journeys to six different countries in southern and eastern Africa to examine those indigenous communities who, in spite of a rapidly modernising continent, are still managing to survive in their natural environment.

Since an estimated 75% of African wildlife lives outside the recognised game reserves, the preservation of its fauna and flora has become a community issue. The old-fashioned practice of creating reserves by removing local people is something of the past, and new relationships are being explored. But the emerging ethos of joint management and shared benefits is more widely heard than practiced. Africa’s precious natural heritage remains an important asset for the planet, and at the same time a major source of attraction for global tourism. But what about the people? Once We Were Hunters addresses these important issues, and in so doing offers a very different way of seeing Africa.. We hear authentic voices expressing ancient value systems and affiliations in our fast-moving world. Written by African writers, some celebrated and award winning, and with photographs by Paul Weinberg, this collection of stories and pictures offers a unique insight into some of the continent’s most rooted people.
