Gender Related Social Groups

In small camps, there is usually no segregation by gender; everyone sits and talks together. Men still hunt alone or with one other man, and women still go foraging with other women, but in camp all socialize together. A couple will spend much time together as well, especially in the early morning and once it starts to get dark. In larger camps, couples also spend those hours together, but during the rest of the day, the sexes are often segregated not just while foraging but in camp. Men will sit together at the men's place, usually the best shade tree, sharing a pipe of tobacco and working on arrows, while women sit together under another tree sewing, or grooming children and one another, and chewing tobacco. Much of the time in camp women are alone or with other women pounding baobab on large rocks.
