Open Talk and Conversation

 Tsamkwa /tge?

You are invited to a conversation with paul john myburgh, about the Bushmen and his time with them.

Living with the Bushmen

Paul is an award winning documentary film maker, anthropologist and author, who has had a life-long commitment to Africa that transcends the boundaries of politics and ideologies.

This became evident years ago when he spent seven years of his life living amongst the !Gwi Kalahari Bushmen, becoming an integral part of this archetypal culture.

A result of this dedication was an internationally acclaimed documentary, ‘People of the Great Sandface’, and his recently published book “The Bushman Winter Has Come”.

Paul will be sharing his knowledge of this ancient race, and their story-pictures left as a record for humanity, and how knowing them is critical to the sustainability of life going forward.  Never before has it been more important to understand and contextualize the First People, their place in world evolution, and our place in the world as modern humans.

  1. Dear Mr Myburgh,

    I trust you are well and safe

    My name is Julien Benoit. I am a palaeontologist at the University of the Witwatersrand.

    I am currently writing a textbook about vertebrate palaeontology and I am looking for good pictures to illustrate it. I contacted Dr. Dominic Stratford to ask him if he would be willing to share a good picture of the complete skeleton of Little Foot. He told me that you were the owner of the pictures and that I should ask you.

    As such, I wanted to ask you if you would agree to share a HD pictures of the complete skeleton of little foot that I could use for my book, please?

    Please answer me at

    Thanking you in advance for your consideration
    Dr. Julien Benoit

    • Dear Julien Benoit

      I understand that textbooks make money. The standard international fee for such a picture is US$250.
      If you are still interested and agreeable, I will draw up a letter of agreement and supply the picture in high resolution.

      My regards
