Fang

 

(also Pangwe, Pahouin), a group of related peoples, including the Yaounde, Bulu, Bene, and Beti, living in southern Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, and the northern parts of Gabon. The Fang number 1.7 million (1975, estimate). Their language belongs to the northwestern group of the Bantu family. The Fang retain traditional religious beliefs—nature and ancestor worship. They engage in farming, raising millet, manioc, peanuts, and yams. Some work on cacao, banana, and coconut-palm plantations and in enterprises located in Yaounde that process agricultural products. Still others work in the logging, wood-products, and mining industries.
