Summary The Akie people live as hunter-gatherers on the vast plains of Northern Tanzania. Their Maasai neighbours know the Akie as Iltorobo, a derogatory word which means 'poor people without cattle'. Akie survive on maize they grow, wild honey they collect, and game they hunt. But Bruce comes to learn that since hunters with guns came to Tanzania and Akie lands shrank, all three sources prove hardly adequate to stave off starvation. If Akie do not get more land to establish their farms on and to use as hunting ground their tribe and their culture will soon disappear. With Bruce Parry.
