Photographer's Note

These are BaTwa women dancing. The BaTwa tribe is marginalized in Rwanda. "Others" do not want to associate with them. Originally hunters and gatherers in (now) vanishing forests, they have left much of a traditional lifestyle behind and are trying hard to integrate into the rest of Rwandan society.

I was sent to photograph their plight. Their dances seemed a big part in holding on to some heritage and ultimately in coping with the discrimination they face.

This photo is meant to represent a small but important part of life for a larger group of women (and ultimately a micro-society).
