Here is some information and short story about an indigenous tribe of Central Africa.
Once known as Zaire. I think (help me here) it is now the Democratic
Republic of Congo) or DRC. Africa is always in fluidity politically, and otherwise.
These incredible people I would not even know about if I were not

while the Harts were doing their research on the rare Okapi, which was considered to be

I really do not know how, and might be too lazy or busy to figure it out.
