The pygmy canopy honey. In Pokola, the forest city between the departments of the Sangha and the Likouala, the forest company CIB aids in the development of the native communities and employs the N’Benseles as trailblazers and a school for the young indigenes with a school calendar adapted to the forest activities has been in operation since several years. The school is quite far from the native village and this distance does not facilitate attendance. For the young indigenes who speak French, the survival of their people depends on the education of an elite who will represent and defend them. Likouala, CongoThe pygmy canopy honey.

The pygmy canopy honey. A honey-hunter prepares the smoker made out of a bundle of sticks stuffed into leaves to create a dense smoke. An exceptional harvest of several kilos of honey from the trunk of an oil palm. Today, the oil palms are planted around the villages by the Bantu farmers following slash-and-burn and we can also find them near the camps of pygmies who consume them and thus scatter the fruit and seeds in the forest.

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, CongoThe pygmy canopy honey.

The pygmy canopy honey. In the early morning following a stormy night that has made the temperatures drop, the women of the camp sing in unison to warm themselves. A moment of sharing in which smiles and good humour win out over the cold and damp of the night. Likouala, CongoThe pygmy canopy honey.

The pygmy canopy honey. A team of honey-hunters have just spotted the flight of bees towards a nest more than 50 metres high in an undergrowth of Mangobé plants. The big equatorial forest of Central Africa is the planets second lung. But in reality it is a very diversified ecosystem. Human presence in this forest goes back more than 20,000 years and during the last 5000 years there have been periods of drought linked to climatic changes. 2500 years ago, with the spreading of iron, and the arrival of the Bantu people, the forest cover was profoundly modified, the savannahs created. The Mangobe plants with an open undergrowth attest to ancient human occupation. These are often the spots where slash and burn has been practiced. Likouala, CongoThe pygmy canopy honey.

The pygmy canopy honey. The dental mutilation among pygmies and Bantu peoples of the North-West of Congo-Brazzaville have been motivated by aesthetics, courage and prominence. Long perpetrated by the two ethnic groups, they tend to disappear among the Bantu. On an enormous mahogany tree 50 metres high, the honey-hunter perched on the trunk passes a branch with dexterity. The pygmies are excellent climbers, athletes of the forest who accomplish feats every day in harvesting the honey. Sangha, CongoThe pygmy canopy honey.

The pygmy canopy honey. At over 40 metres above the ground, the honey-hunters smoke the bees and gather the honey from the forest canopy. During the little honey season in April and May, the harvests are smaller than during the big season in August and September. Several nests are harvested each day. The period with an abundance of honey is called “Nbosso”, August September. Everybody is in the forest and there's no one left in the village. It's during this period that the “Douma”, the honey wine, is made. Sangha, CongoThe pygmy canopy honey.
