Antioch In Conversation: Our Environment – “Vanishing Cultures”

Film: “Vanishing Cultures: Bushmen of the Kalahari”

Friday, July 25, 7-9pm       

Please join us as Dr. Dawn A. Murray explores indigenous hunter and gatherer societies.


  • Watch excerpts from the documentary “vanishing cultures” and discuss the San Bushmen, believed to be the earliest inhabitants of southern Africa. They have lived for over 80,000 years in the Kalahari Desert, and are well-known for their expert survival skills in this harsh environment. 
  • Hear a Shuar from the Amazon speak about his culture. The Shuar are an indigenous people of Ecuador and Peru. They live at the headwaters of the Marañón River. Since the discovery of oil in the upper Amazon, the Shuar have been forced to defend their lands from the collective threat of oil extraction. 
  • Learn how you can help protect these priceless habitats.
