Bwindi Forest is home to the Batwa pygmies the original people of the forest, The Batwa (pygmies) lived in harmony with the forest and survived by hunting small animals using bows and arrows and gathering plants for both food and medicinal, but when the forest changed to the national park the Batwa changed forever, what used to their home protect the area for the endangered mountain gorillas that reside within Bwindi Impenetrable forest.
Batwa (Pygmies) were evicted from the forests and it became a conservation area, the Batwa people are not used to the modern environment and they began suffering because everything in the forest was free but now they have to find food, the house where to stay and other basic needs which they are not used to.
