    Bushcraft-wise I found these videos of African indigenous hunter/ gatherers interesting.Torobo tribe plus shelter building videos and pygmys(1930's videos)

    From what I could gather from speaking to Samburu warriors while in Kenya, they call the Torobo "bushmen" and they have strong trading ties since the Samburu don't make their own tools and weapons (Spear, Seme knife, etc.) of which they trade with Torobo blacksmiths in return for pastoral products. However the Samburu make their Rungus (throwing club) and cow hide shields themselves.
