[Fieldwork] Working with BaYaka kids in Congo (1/7)

For the next few weeks, I’ll be posting photos and videos from my recent trip to northern Congo with the wonderful Sarah M. Pope (@sezdoesscience). Sarah is an amazing scientist, but also a photographer, whose captured beautiful images and videos of BaYaka children’s daily activities and learning experiences.

In this video, the children perform their own play version of a dance. Notice that, though all these children are under 12, they are conforming to the gender norms in their culture; the girls sing, the boys drum.
