the cultures in GABON are. Gabon is one of the most thinly populated countries in Africa. Over 80 percent of the people live in small and large cities. Many people farm in gar…dens and fields. They plant cassava (a root crop), ground and palm nuts, yams, and many fruit crops. Farmers also raise small livestock for meat. Fish is an important part of the Gabonese diet. There are many ethnic groups in Gabon. The Fang, the most influential group, live in the north and center. The Omyéné, a small but important group of related peoples, live along the coast. They were the first to meet and deal with European traders and missionaries. This contact gave them an early advantage in education and commerce. Small groups of Pygmies live in the thick southern forest. They hunt and trap animals for food. Some are settled in villages and interact with farmers. The people in most parts of Gabon once lived in houses that had walls made of mud covered branches and roofs made of woven grass. These houses had reed mats hanging at the windows and doors. But now many houses have corrugated metal roofs, and Gabonese families now try to save enough money to build concrete houses. Most villages have a meeting place, where the older men of the village gather to visit or to discuss village affairs. (MORE)
Gabon is a tropical rain forest. I, myself, am Gabonese. The rain forest region of Africa is west central Africa, and and some of the countries above. Some countries in th…e rain forest biome are Gabon, Cameroon, Congo, Ghana, and Nigeria. The trees there are being cut down at a faster rate than they can grow. If this continues, there would be no more trees. The rain forests make up a small percentage in Africa, as you well know that the desert is more common. Just as Saudi Arabia is dependent on oil, the countries in this region are dependent on their trees. If the trees are gone, their economy is more likely to fall. So we have to savor the scarcity of trees there because they provide air and medicine for Africa, who needs it. (MORE)
