            Award-winning documentarians and academics Jon Cox, Katrin Redfern, and Andew Stern, in partnership with the Gallery at Atlas Industries have produced a multimedia exhibition documenting the Hadza tribe of Tanzania. The exhibit will present Hadza daily life, culture, and expertise through photography, an immersive soundscape, text and artifacts – including a traditional Hadza grass hut. The closing reception will include an evening of talks on egalitarian social organization, a screening of the documentary The Hadza: Last of the First, and silent auction. All proceeds raised from prints and book sales will go to the Dorobo Fund to secure land rights for the Hadza.

            Long before the social justice movements of today, humans were engaged in a living experiment in equality. Our common origins as egalitarian hunter-gatherers challenge the idea of human society as inherently selfish and competitive. The Hadza, some of the last remaining hunter-gatherers on the planet, provide insight into our past, and how we might imagine our future at a time when a reimagining is desperately needed.
