LA FORESTA DEI BAKA

                                                                Seppur con qualche difficoltà, mi sono spinto fin qui, in questa sconfinata terra  nell’ est del Camerun per raggiungere un isolato insediamento Bakà. Quello che mi affascina di più
                                                        in questo angolo d’Africa è la presenza umana. Gruppi etnici da sempre convivono a stretto contatto in un ambiente fino a poco tempo fa inaccessibile ed hanno conservato intatte
                                                        tradizioni e modi di vita antichissimi.

                                                                                                                                   Durata 36 min. (lingua Italiana)

BAKA'S FOREST

                                                                    A people of hunters and gatherers, Baka Pygmies live in the rain forest of Cameroon, Gabon and Congo. They are typically shaped one-family houses made of branches and leaves and almost always built by women. Within the
                                                                                    Baka Pygmy culture, hunting and gathering are one of the most important activities, not only for its role in providing food but above all for the symbolic meanings and the prestige traditionally attached to it. Dam fishing, a
                                                                                    prevalently female activity, is the most popular fishing technique used by Baka Pygmies, especially during dry seasons, when the water level is low and it is easier to drain the streams and find fish in the mud. Looking for food in
                                                                                    the forest is one of the most important activities for the survival of the group. The products gathered by Pygmies are yam, fruit, mushrooms, etc. They are basically vegetables, but in
                                                                                    the dry season of the year it is also possible to find such as termites and wild honey.
