The Baka pygmies of Cameroon are certainly one of the oldest peoples of the world’s forests. Their number is estimated at about 40,000 people, which makes them the largest pygmy group in these countries, with the Bagyely, Medzam and Bakola ethnic groups with only a few thousand people.
Basically, the pygmy groups are united by a common culture and share the same way of life: exploitation of the forest environment by hunting, fishing and gathering, honey harvesting, construction of intertwined huts (moungoulous) covered with foliage ensuring their sealing, use of plants, bark, roots and plant fibres for therapeutic purposes, cult animist of the spirit of the forest (Kirdi) and the protective totem of the community (Ejengi).
The vast majority of the Baka are out of school. The Baka youth learn about the forest from an early age and actively participate in the life of the camp by practising gathering, fishing and «small hunting» with the help of traps. The evenings are dedicated to collective games and participation in songs and dances that bring families together around campfires.
