Story: Trading with the Makoba and elephant tusks
Trading with the Makoba and elephant tusks
The !kun hunt elephants and then trade elephant tusks and other parts with the Makoba in exchange for food (and cattle to use as meat). A Makoba tells !nanni's people to go into 'another country' and seek and kill other large elephants to bring tusks back for him. In exchange he will give !nanni's people a small animal (a cow or calf).
