The pygmy canopy honey. In the evening at the camp, the people talk to the children about the ancestors and their ways of the past. They speak of hunting elephants with assegais. The ancestors, the great elephant hunters, are called “Touma” and when a entered the forest, the people had hopes for an exceptional hunt. During the nocturnal ceremonies, the whole camp calls upon the largesse of the god “Comba”. The chants are hunting songs, of enthusiasm and thanks for the hunt or harvest to come. These ceremonies often take place after a good hunt, when the camp shares antelope or boar meat. Likiouala, Congo
