The Batwa pygmies of south western Uganda are indigenous forest-dwellers who were evicted from their ancestral homeland in 1991 when the forests became a national park for gorilla conservation.
The Batwa are traditional hunter-gatherers who have struggled to cope with life in the 21st Century. Some now work as guides for tourists - giving walking tours of the forests and an insight into their ancient and lost way of life. Vishva Samani joined them.
