The group consists of (a) Bushmen proper--those who completely rejected the new farming culture and held on to their hunting culture; (b) the Hottentot Bushmen--those who although they accepted the farming cultures still held on to some of the beliefs and customs of the hunting age and (c) the Negrillos Bushmen who took to jungle life and adopted certain farming cultures into their social system (72).
The author concludes this chapter by focusing on "The Negrillos or the Pygmies" and contends that "[t]he main cultural difference between the pygmies and the Bushmen proper was that the Pygmies were jungle men while the Bushmen were grass and bush men" (76-77).
In the North are the Hamites and the Semites, descendants of common origin; and the Negroes, Bushmen, Hottentots, Pygmies or Negrillos and the Bantu Negro group in East, West, Central and South Africa (78).
These forbears of civilisation have been labelled a number of derogatory terms; "Pygmies", "Negritos" and "Negrillos
" (Central Africa), "Bushmen" and "Hottentots" (Southern Africa).
