Children of the Forest
Photograph by Randy Olson

In the heart of central Africa's Ituri forest, a Pygmy boy angles for lunch. Known as the Mbuti, these semi-nomadic hunter-gatherers might be the original inhabitants of the enormous central African rain forest—though no one knows exactly how long they have lived there. Just one of about several Pygmy groups, the Mbuti trap, trade, and hunt to ancient rhythms, their lives intimately tied to the forest.
