  1. This is an interesting list that you have! I enjoyed reading through it. Might I add another tribe? The Hadzabe Tribe of Tanzania are an interesting group of people. They don’t have permanent homes but move from one place to another and live off the land. They also have their own unique language known as “clicking”. I think having their own language alone would be evidence of how old the tribe has existed. And the fact that within the tribe there is no leader and everyone’s status is equal. I think that’s a rather progressive view of things to have. Don’t you think they’re an interesting tribe to meet? They’re one of the few tribes I would love to visit when I travel to Africa.
