The Bushmen, also known as the San, which means “The People,” are direct descendants of the oldest human culture.  I had the honor of meeting a number of the Bushmen, some of whom work at Harnas, others who live in cardboard shacks at the side of the road.  In God is a Lion I explore their culture, history, and stories.  Their languages, known as the Click languages, are the most linguistically complex language on the face of the earth. They suffer the same fate as indigenous peoples around the world – marginalized and impoverished, the wisdom of their ancient culture fading away.
