« Back to Ituri Pygmies: Who Rules the Forest? September 2005 National Geographic Magazine

Carrying Fire..Pygmies carry fire wherever they go.  This is another strobe-blur photo because it was so dark.  The strobe scared the bejesus out of these folks... but they loved the back of the digi.. Paluku told me they've never seen a white guy before... but I really felt it when the small children screamed and dogs barked at me..
