There are an estimated 130,000 San living across six countries in southern Africa. The San are one of the last hunter-gatherer societies left on earth. Their ancient way of life, their languages, and their culture are under grave threat from dis-enfranchisement, climate change impacts, and a widespread lack of understanding of their way of life.

The story of the San is one that many people across the world might not know, but it is one that everyone will recognise. It is our story - the story of humankind. At !Khwa ttu, the San tell this story, in their own words.
