We visited Pygmy villages in Southwest CAR today along the Republic of Congo border. They were not immune to the conflict despite largely keeping to themselves. One village we spent time with had a third of its people killed by Seleka for no reason. As part of the Pygmy tradition, every time a member of its village dies, the entire village moves and starts a new village. They took us on their jungle trails and showed us how and what they gather, trap, and hunt. They are a beautiful people that live simply and as a family.
