Most mbuti live near the villages of Bantu farmers. They have had a close economic and social relationship together for hundreds of years.
The Mbuti people help the Bantu Farmers and in return the Bantu farmers help the Mbuti people.
The Mubti people often trade the Bantu farmers for food and othe r things.
The Mbuti people do not have any problems in the modern world because of their independent nature and their relationship with the Bantu farmers. Effective Government Now that the Central African Government is democratic people have begun to notice that the new government is helping people change the economy for the good. Also this democratic government has let the people be more free and they get the right to vote for office. The only downfall about this new governmeant is some of the people do not like it at all. Like the Laurent Kalbila, he was the president that announced the Democratic way of government. Because of the Announcement three years Later Laurent Kabila was Assasinated but his son Joseph Kabila carried on the new demcratic and now Central Africa is a good and rising region of Africa . Central Africa I think by studing it could have a successful and bright future in Africa and would be Africa's most powerful region Popular Culture Small Farmers
Houses made out of wood and clay
Hunt and search for food in rain forests
Most people are Christians
Some still follow African Tradition VISIT Yes, we both think that visiting Central Africa would be fun. There is an abundant amount of things to do. You can go and visit the cataracts, or you could go and travel the eight countries. For example you could go visit Principe, which is one of the island countries. Or you could go visit land locked Chad. The Congo river would also be an interesting place to visit. Visiting the Mbuti people would be an awesome thing to do. They couyld teach you some things about here home land. While you are in the rain forest, you could also explore that. Central Africa is an interesting place to visit now but in the future it will become an even better place to live or visit. It will most likely become one of the strongest regions in Africa.
