Summary Namibian independence attracts vast amounts of international aid, but development programs no longer benefit Ju/'hoan farms. We witness the power of the "Bushman myth." This myth- a belief that Ju/'hoansi live uniquely in harmony with nature and are born to hunt. Promised great wealth, Ju/'hoansi vote to establish a nature conservancy. When their profits are a meager 75 Namibian dollars ({dollar}10.50 US) each- Ju/'hoansi ask, 'Where is all the money going?"
