They comprise nine chiefdoms.

Like most of the western Grasslands people, Babanki political authority is vested in a village chief, who is supported by a council of elders, and is called Fon."

Zulu Abang Dance: Radiance from the River and Efik Ideal of Femininity "To dance is human, and humanity expresses itself in dance. Dancing interweaves with many aspects of life, such as art, communication, belief systems, social relations and political dynamics. Interwoven in Abang dances are three modalities: space, rhythm, and unity. Each of these modalities conveys its own distinct message(s) but interacts with each other to produce a specific form of dance as an expression and communicative art." - From Africa Resource Center - http://www.ijele.com/ijele/vol1.1/onyile.html Acacia Initiative: International Development Research Centre (IDRC) Centre de recherches pour le développement international (CRDI) (3.1) "The Acacia Initiative: Communities and the Information Society in Africa Program Initiative is an international program to empower sub-Saharan communities with the ability to apply information and communication technologies (ICTs) to their own social and economic development." - From International Development Research Centre - Africa Online: Kids Only A great kids site about Africa.

Extractions: A Challenge mask. A BANGWA STYLE Bangwa lies at the watershed of two important culture areas of the Bamileke the savannah on the one hand, and of the Ekoi Cross River group of the West Cameroon forests and Eastern Nigeria on the other. Culturally the Bangwa are heterogeneous, although their language and social organisation ally them with the Bamileke. Bangwa art, it will be clear, has affinities to the art styles of both areas: local sculptors are expert both at the manufacture of the forest-inspired skin-covered head masks and at the savannah-type portrait statues. One problem is to determine how far this group of nine miniature chiefdoms can be said to have its own distinctive art style. The Bangwa are a very mobile people, receptive to ideas and inspiration from all points of the compass. It is therefore difficult to isolate one style or tradition stamping each work of art. From the forest, particularly from their nearest western neighbours the Banyang, the Bangwa have acquired a number of secret societies, with their associated masks. The Cross

Extractions: IN BANGWA SOCIETY AND CULTURE 1889 TO 1993 c.1889 to 1898 THE PRE-COLONIAL PERIO D Fontem Asonganyi is perhaps the most interesting of all the paramount chiefs to have ruled in the Bangwa area. He is the dominant figure in the history of Bangwa during the past 100 years and for that reason he will sometimes appear in what follows. After having fought off a rival claimant, Asonganyi succeeded his father, Fontem Atshemabo, about the year 1889 while still only in his teens. He developed his position as a middleman in the trade economy between the grasslands and the forest area to its full potential and quickly became very wealthy. Through alliances, guile and plain old violence Asonganyi absorbed many of the previously independent local chiefs into his chiefdom, Lebang, making it the largest in all of Bangwa, modelling it and himself much more closely on the lines of the Bamileke kingdoms and their powerful rulers, the Fons. He made extensive use of the traditional societies, particularly Troh and Lefem , as a means of creating greater social and political control over his chiefdom and introduced many others which had previously never been seen, borrowing from not just grassland culture but also forest cultures as well. Between 1896 and 1900 he also led wars against the neighbouring

Extractions: S- Shannon Charlton Introduction Ornithologically, Cameroon remains little known despite being the most accessible and richest country in West Africa for birds. Lying at the junction between West and Central Africa, and forming a key part of the Lower Guinea Endemic Bird Area (EBA), Cameroon and its highland chain supports over 900 bird species, amongst them seven endemics. Cameroon is highly diverse with typical lowland tropical rainforests in the south and west to the Pro-Sahelian savanna in the north, and from rolling plains to volcanic beaches and mangrove swamps. The lowland forests of Korup are primal and magical places. Our undoubted trip highlight came in the form of a group of seven Grey-necked Picathartes, hissing and leaping about their theatre-like cavern. A narrow second place goes to the family of Bouviers (Vermiculated) Fishing Owl that we located in Korup. Other highlights here included Black Guineafowl, Forest Francolin and Rachels Malimbe. There is no doubt that Cameroon offers the most exceptional birding in West Africa, and definitely is one of the top three destinations in the whole continent.
