Bwanga

Means ‘Medicine’ in Mbendjee, the language of the Mbendjele BaYaka hunter-gatherers. The Mbendjele have a very well developed traditional healing system.

Yet, if forced to abandon their mode of living in order for them to have access to health, education and other services all based on the assumption that people have to be sedentarised to do so they not only abandon their previous mode of life but begin to lose the knowledge and skills coming with it. 

Healers​

All healers are skilled in treating a number of diseases with the pharmacopeia of the forest and some have additional skills such as healing broken bones.

Why Hunter-Gatherers

Hunter-gatherers like the Mbendjele BaYaka, also referred to as Pygmies, have unique knowledge about the delicate balance of the eco-system they live in. In order to address climate change it becomes increasingly important to search more innovatively for solutions. The intimate knowledge of people who have lived for millennia in such eco-systems could be valuable in conservation projects working in the Congo. When people are forced to sedentarise in order to have access to health, education and other services, they not only abandon their previous mode of life but also lose the accumulated knowledge and skills that came with it, and humanity is that much poorer.
