One of a race of Central African Negritos found chiefly in the great forests of the equatorial belt. They are the shortest of known races, the adults ranging from less than four to about five feet in stature. They are timid and shy, dwelling in the recesses of the forests, though often on good terms with neighboring Negroes.
An academic term that refers to the many different groups of forest hunter-gatherers living in, and on their margins, of the central African forests. It is considered offensive by many, but is increasingly being used by 'Pygmy' activists in recognition of the shared problems they face. Having the merit of being generally understood, the term is used in this report to refer to these hunter gatherer peoples of the region, who often find themselves marginalized and discriminated against when forests are developed.
