Today they are some of the poorest people in the whole world with a low life expectancy and a high infant mortality rate. Some anthropologists say that most pygmy tribes such as the Batwa/the Twa have existed for more than 60,000 years in the equatorial forests. The Batwa lived a lifestyle of gathering fruit and plant, and hunting game in the forest using bows and arrows, this was mainly for both medical and food purposes. They led a harmonious life in the forests, they never practiced farming, no charcoal making or deforestation, not even the shelters they had could destroy the environment.
