What would you ask a real hunter-gatherer if you could? (You can!)

What would you like to ask a contempory hunter gatherer? Survival International gives you the opportunity to record a video question:

"Record a video message for the Aw??"

What would you ask? Will you use this possibility?

Reminds me of the movie, "The Gods Must Be Crazy," where a Coke bottle falling from the sky results in hilarious consequences.

Hello sir, indeed interesting question. I don't know about the Awa, but in all hunter-gatherer societies that I've read about, there is no 'supernatural'. The ghosts, the spirits, the gods, they are all part of the 'real world'. So they probably find the word 'believe' in your question strange... Cheers

What do you eat? How is it prepared? How often?

How do you educate your children?

I wouldn't ask anything and leave them and their lifestyle alone. Jealous much....

I'd ask: What are your macronutrient ratios? Then I'd run like hell because they wouldn't know what I was talking about and kill and eat me.

But, it would be cool to dissect their diet.

Can a modern person come and be part of your tribe? I often wish I could.

My own question would be something like this:

What do you find strange in the lifestyle of non-hunter-gatherers?

I will think a bit on how to formulate this question a bit better, and try to make the video message.

"Do you believe in God? Why, and what's he/she like?"

I won't record a video question; just too much hassle.
