Children therefore with so many caretakers available are quickly allowed free range of the camp. The demands of Mbuti women's work often require that they be out of camp in places where it is difficult to care for small children. A mother ...

"Relations between the Mbuti and the Bantu and Sudanese farming communities rely on a subtle balance of pillage and bartering forest products against those of the fields. In certain regions, the demand for forest game provided by the Mbuti has been so great that it has been almost totally depleted. These Mbuti will soon be reduced to becoming settl...
