Many in our modern society view hunter-gatherers as natural exemplars of how we should raise our children, eat, exercise and conserve resources. Hunter-gatherers are thought to have maintained equality between the sexes, lacked economic inequality and rarely resorted to deadly violence. Hames’ talk will sketch the diversity of hunter-gatherer life and qualify or debunk many of these utopian assumptions.
