On our shoot in the Kalahari desert we were constantly on the lookout for Park Rangers. As people may know by now, the San Bushmen were forcibly relocated from their homeland under the guise of conservation. Despite no record of any sort of animal extinction across the 125000 years they lived freely in the Kalahari, the government decided that they were a threat to the animals and to eco tourism. If they catch the Bushmen hunting, Rangers have the authority to shoot them on site and then ask questions later. As we moved through the Kalahari preparing for such a hunt, we had to constantly stay a day or two ahead of the Ranger rotation. 📷: @forestwoodward

#Repost @survivalinternational ・・・ Tribal peoples are being illegally evicted from their ancestral lands in the name of “conservation.” They’re accused of “poaching” when they only hunt for food. And they face arrest, beatings, torture and death, while fee-paying big game hunters are encouraged. They’re blamed for wildlife decline which they didn’t cause. Yet for millennia, tribespeople have shaped these landscapes, been dependent on them, and nurtured and protected them. Tribal peoples manage their environment and its wildlife better than anyone else. Read more: #climateaction #climatewoke #gogreen

The oldest remaining hunting and gathering civilization on earth – the San Bushmen of the Kalahari. They are not allowed to even dress in their ancestral clothing, much less hunt. Here, our main character Gaolo takes youth on a hunt understanding fully that if they are caught they face death. None of them cared. They are warriors and refused to sacrifice their identities. at Kalahari

Ashprihanal Aalto, who is the star of @3100film has quite possibly raced more than any other male on earth (at least one female has raced more than him - more on that below). After soloing the Appalachian and Pacific crest Trails, Ashprihanal took on multi-day running, which is exactly what it sounds like – running races that take days not hours. His first multi-day was a 700 mile race which he finished worse for the wear, but still finished. A few years later he took on the challenge of the self transcendence 3100 mile race. He has completed the race a record 14 times and in between ran a number of 10 day races (his best is 833 miles), a few 6 day races and a few thousand and 1300 mile races. Just the 3100 mile races alone amount to more than 42,000 miles of racing – not to mention the training. That 42,000 miles is the equivalent of more than 1600 marathons or nearly 7000 10 km races. Put it this way, 1600 marathons is racing a marathon a week for 30 years. A female DC-native Suprabha Beckjord finished the 3100 thirteen times but she had nearly 10 years of multiday races before that and most likely has raced around 48,000 miles. Ashprihanal is planning on doing the 3,100 in 2019 and is inching closer to her race mile total. See the film this week in Seattle, Portland, Eugene, Flagstaff and Phoenix. #runandbecome @sevenhillsrunning @gretchen_walla @northwest_trail_runs @foottrafficpdx @stumprunners @bromka @pinkfeathers @runwidkeel @fastkate @quinnthenavajo @wings_of_america @eugene_running_company @faithevebee

The San Bushmen of the Kalahari face an uncertain future. Forcibly removed after 125,000 of continuous habitation of their homeland, they are struggling to overcome the anti-indigenous sentiment of the Botswanan government.

The course of the Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race is a simple as it gets :: a 1/2 mile sidewalk loop (with 4 ninety degrees angles). The race is held every summer in heat of NYC. With all the potential to suffer, the race participants are supernaturally focused on mining the experience of joy. And hence, the race course itself is oddly and inspiringly peaceful.
