That must have been really rough, I wonder how they made it through such hard time.The country cannot feed many people.
Namibia is the driest country south of the Sahara.
There is not a single river that has water all year round and flows into the sea.
In the 50ies there was a phase, where it did not rain for almost seven years..........
An ecological catastrophe for humans and animals.
Forgotten by the world.
In North America, South America, Australia or Africa did any indigenous progess past the Stone Age. Tell me about their contribution to the better of civilization.I watched the above when it was first posted elsewhere. (Have had a few raging arguments on the internet with the film's supporters) The evil White man BS is wearing a little thin with me. The current population of Namibia is 2.6 million. The population when the White man first arrived is unknown, but from researching, was probably between 20 thousand and 80 thousand. The Northern European brought the technology to drill the bore hole, or well. No African indigenous tribe could do this. Most of Namibia's people owe their ability to live in the desert to that technology. White's also brought modern medicine, cars, roads, their system of govt, and even the cell phone....that no African can seem to live without. No, indigenous only want to remember the bad. And there was some. Was it worse than the intertribal wars that often decimated or enslaved them? Don't know, but I doubt it. To hear libs talk, the Earth was a peaceful paradise before the colonies. But read a little history; that is a load. To the Northern Europeans settlers of old, I say "thank you". 2 million people in Namibia owe their lives to you. JMO. To the OP, thanks for posting. A lot of good info in there too....................FWB
I guess it all depends what betterment of civilization means to you. But Mesoamericans were using bronze tools, and smelting iron for ornamental purposes before “discovery”In North America, South America, Australia or Africa did any indigenous progess past the Stone Age. Tell me about their contribution to the better of civilization.
