The year is 25,000 B.C., you are Nata, a young boy from the Huna tribe in what will someday be known as western Africa. This morning starts out like any other morning. You awaken early to the smell of smoke drifting in through the opening into your family's grass hut. The morning air is already warm and the sun peaks through your grass walls, shining into your still sleepy eyes. As you poke your head out of the hut, you see your mother along with various aunts and cousins getting ready to gather the day's supply of berries, nuts, and roots. As with most tribes, you are either a hunter or a gatherer. You are nearing your 13th birthday and you know that your time as a gatherer is nearing its end. Soon, you will join your father, brothers, and uncles as a hunter. As you gaze dreamily into the smoky fire, your mother approaches you saying, "We must go.". You grab your leather pouch and follow the others along a well worn trail into the wilds of the plain. The women and children scatter throughout the brush, searching for the life-sustaining berries and roots. You dig at the ground with various stone tools, prying at the tough roots. After hours of gathering, the flies are beginning to bite. It is approaching noon. The gatherers head back to camp, to avoid the heat of the sun.
