Traditional hunting


In Namibia, hunter gatherers still make use of various methods for hunting purposes, which under normal circumstances, and from a western civilization based point of view, might be illegal, and un-ethical. However, these groups do this as part of their tradition and these activities are quite ethical in their culture. Snaring and the use of poisoned arrows by San and peoples in the Kavango are some of the examples. Here ISAP should make a clear definition cut. We are not here to change the ethics of people, or to impose our ethics on their lifestyle, as long as this way of hunting is not employed for commercial gain.
