Reference Appendix Home TERMINOLOGY Forest Peoples also referred to as Pygmies are known by various names in different parts of the country; thus, nomenclature can be confusing. The majority of groups still live next to their long-standing neighbours (often referred to as traditional) thus names for the Forest People can differ only in so much as they are equivalent labels given to them by different ethnic groups. For example, Barimba, being the Punu word for Forest People in general, is used in the Southern regions of Gabon where there are high densities of Bapunu. There are often overlaps and multiple names for the same group, and these names likewise differ from what the Forest People call themselves. In informal discourses, it is often said that, certain peoples such as the Mitsogo, and the Pygmies are the same because of their longstanding relationships and traditional forest hunting way of life. As is so common throughout central Africa, the term also carries with it the double identity of the Pygmies as nothing (numerous derogatory connotations, lower status) and everything (healers and fetishers that know the secrets of nature). They themselves use the word with outsiders as a form of self-description, interchangeably with such local terms as Babongo, again in contexts that emphasise their dual identity as small and powerless and omnipotent fetishers, and, like other Gabonese, go on to elucidate its meaning in relation to the term Bantu.
