The Hadza live in a savannah/woodland habitat in northern Tanzania. SCAN will focus on the few remaining traditional camps that still live solely by hunting and gathering. These small, mobile camps consist of about 25 people, and move every month or two. Hadza women do most of the food gathering and also hunt small animals, while men harvest honey and bow hunt various species of large and small game.
Dr. Frank Marlowe will be working with Layne Vashro at the Hadza site. Marlowe has worked with the Hadza since 1995, and has extensive data on Hadza demography, genealogy, foraging, and social behavior. He also has GPS data on Hadza foraging tracks from 2004-2010, which will be used in this project.
