The Bushmen are the oldest inhabitants of the Kalahari desert, the immense expanse of sand and shrubs between South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. They are an indigenous minority that for years has been asking for their rights and their cultural identity to be respected. They are forced by the government to abandon their ancestral lands, a desert as inhospitable as it is their only source of livelihood. In addition to depriving them of their lands, the local authorities are trying to transform the Bushmen into a settled people, erasing their cultural identity as a nomadic people. Deception Valley is a precise geographical place in the Kalahari Desert, but it is also a metaphor for what its meaning expresses: the Valley of deception. "
