Date:

Scope and Contents:
Several major geographic regions may be defined in terms of terrain and patterns of natural vegetation, namely the central Congo Basin, the uplands north and south of the basin, and the eastern highlands. The eastern highlands region is the highest and most rugged portion of the country. It extends for more than 1,500 kilometers from above Lake Albert to the southern tip of Katanga (formerly Shaba) below Lubumbashi (formerly Élisabethville) and varies in width from eighty to 560 kilometers. Its hills and mountains range in altitude from about 1,000 meters to more than 5,000 meters. The western arm of the Great Rift Valley forms a natural eastern boundary to this region. In this region, changes in elevation bring marked changes in vegetation, which ranges from montane savanna to heavy montane forest. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon was on assignment for National Geographic and traveled to Africa from January 19, 1972 to mid April 1972.

"Mbuti women will spend hours gathering the abundant tubers and Dioscorea spp yams. Wild tubers are definitely not a preferred food, they are unpalatable, laborious to prepare. Great care must taken in selecting wild tubers; as although 'Njatu' and 'Kocho' are very similar in appearance, 'Kocho' contains deadly concentrations of the bitter-poison hydrocyanic acid." [Wilkie, D. S., 1988: Hunters and Farmers of the African Forest. University of California Press, Berkeley]. During his trip to Zaire (now Democratic Republic of Congo), Elisofon visited the Mbuti people at Epulu, South East Ituri Forest region. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon was on assignment for National Geographic Film and traveled to Africa from January 19, 1972 to mid April 1972.

"According to Patrick and Anne Putman, Mbuti art, both on the body and on bark cloth, is of purely aesthetic nature, without magical significance. Certain facial scarifications may indicate the membership of a clan. Elsewhere the design owes more to the artist's imagination than to any agreed subject."
