Description : They go hunting unregularly and bring few animals, but this is far from being enough to feed the 48 members of the family.

People gathered there 3 years ago. Since then, they try to live according to tradition, but in a state of poverty and mendicity because they cannot have access to the natural resources they need to sustain their living anymore (hunting, fishing, fruit picking, medicinal herbs, etc.). In some cases, they may eventually live like before, but in a limited and insufficient way. Deep jungle is far away ansd scarce surrounding resources usually lay in lands owned by sharecroppers.
