African Rainforest & Pygmy Peoples
Baka woman with basket on her back, setting off to gather food from the forest (Baka Pygmies, Cameroon).
"One day you go out to lay your traps, the next you gather termites. You build a dam of branches and mud, so the river runs dry and you can fill your basket with fish. And every life that you take away from the forest is transformed within you: every fruit that you pick, every animal you kill. You must not feel guilty about this, the Baka say. There's nothing to be ashamed of..."
