Bagjeli Pygmies 

Eastern Cameroon 

Bagjeli Pygmies


The Bagjeli Pygmies of westerm Cameroon form two distinct types of houses. They make a domed 'bender' formed from hoops set at ninety degrees to each other with large leaves sandwiched between, and rectangular houses made mostly from the ribs of large palm fronds. Large leaves are placed between two layers of sticks which are then sewn together with bark rope.

Nowadays practically all Bagjeli are settled, but they still build these houses when out on hunting trips.
