BAKA PYGMIES - BREASTFEEDING WOMAN (CAMEROON)
African Rainforest & Pygmy Peoples
Baka woman breast feeding a baby outside a mud hut (Baka Pygmies, Cameroon).
"The women blow air onto the fires under the cooking pots, then set to work weaving baskets, seated outside the mouth of their hut. They slip back into the belly of the hut to breast feed their babies, sitting on the bed, which is a plant fibre mat spread over shredded banana leaves..."
