Idjwi Island, Democratic Republic of Congo
The Wider Image: A dying way of life for Congo's Pygmies
On Idjwi, the largest island in Democratic Republic of Congo, a way of life is dying. The Bambuti, one of several Pygmy groups in Congo, are among central Africa's oldest indigenous peoples. For millennia, they have lived as hunter-gatherers, surviving off the forest's bounty of plants, birds and monkeys. Idjwi, in the middle of Lake Kivu, has been spared the ravages of wars in eastern Congo that have killed millions of people since 1996, mostly from hunger and disease. But for its indigenous inhabitants, the advance of another culture has proved nearly as devastating. The Bambutis, like Pygmy groups across central Africa, have been pushed out of a native land to which they could assert no legal title - in this case, to make way for an exploding ethnic Bantu population who now make up more than 95 percent of Idjwi's 280,000 inhabitants. Around 1980, the Bambuti say, local authorities and customary chiefs from the Bahavu, a Bantu people, expelled them from the forests and turned the land over to Bahavu to farm and build houses. The Bambuti lost their livelihood and, with few if any assets, no education, and no experience of how to support themselves in an alien environment, their society has withered.

Several hundred Romanian gypsies live in precarious conditions, without running water or sewage services, in "El Gallinero", just 15 km (9 miles) away from Madrid's centre. The inhabitants live in ramshackle huts made out of cardboard and zinc in an area prone to flooding. Marin arrived at the settlement from her native Romania when she was 13 years old. She has five children. "Life here is difficult, but it's even worse back in Romania. My children were born in Spain, they can go to school here. I don't want to return," Marin says.

Native Brazilian Indians protest in front of the Court in Brasilia
Native Brazilian Indians protest against a possible rule by the Supreme Court of the end of legality of an Indian reservation, in front of the Court in Brasilia December 9, 2008. The Court is expected to decide on Wednesday on the legality of the Indian reservation about the size of Kuwait in Roraima state, created by President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva three years ago. The state governor says the reserve is too big for the about 17,000 Indians inhabiting it. Mining, agricultural and timber officials say Indians are an obstacle to development.

The tribe was part of the group of native inhabitants of the Andaman chain of islands, who numbered several thousand about two centuries ago but have now dwindled to less than 50. Eight days on, hungry and sick survivors of the Indian Ocean tsunami are waiting for food and medicine in growing desperation as a multinational aid operation tries to reach remote towns ravaged by the waves.
