Who ever said we where in Africa?
It was mentioned a while ago that we were in the birth place of humanity, as there is no other place to be by now.

We're presumably in Africa as there are both Gazelle and Lions, which are almost symbolic of Africans.

I'm sure there are other places we could be but until winter comes we don't know where we are, vertically, and we only have a wide range horizontally. We could pin it down knowing what we do know...

 1) We have the co-existance of Gazelle and Lions.
 2) It is 10,000 B.C.E
 3) Humanity exists here in a tribal state
 4) We are in a forest of some sort (citation needed)
 5) There's a lake and enough grass to support a fleshed out ecosystem, so we are not in a desert.

The Piramides where build when there was civilization.
And there isn't any civilization yet. so the  piramides aren't build yet.

I believe so, given the similiarities of the animal and plant life to earth and the atomosphere being the same.

'Bout becoming urban - sometime back there was talk about religious centers as the locations of the first cities, without even agriculture. How about picking that up? convince the other tribe that we follow some higher being that protects us from the evil everywhere, and that the masks are necessary for that. If they don't give in, present them with some (poisoned) meat and warn them about stomachache being the consequence of not following the surpreme being beforehand.

(Only a little bit poisoned, of course; we don't want them to actually die :D )

Let's not poison our allies?

I think our religion will evolve naturally, or if it doesn't we can adopt someone elses. Founding a religion right now is a little bit of a waste, since it'll destroy any secularism we can develop. Imagine a democratic society in 5,000 B.C?

We could poison them a little bit... You know, to make them fear the evil that is all around us.

And democracy in 5000 BC - I doubt this would work technologically, at least for systems larger than a few towns. If it does, though, I see no mutual exclusivity between religion and democracy; we would just need a bit less of a "cover in fear" approach ;)

Set up that permanent settlement and begin specialization. That's the key to advancement.
