Mbuti women assemble shelter walls using mongongo leaves in double leaf construction. They make a leaf-hut more impervious to rain. Shelters are built six feet high in a beehive-shaped frame of sticks. The forest hunting camps are about 10k apart, and 10K from where they string their nets to hunt in DR Congo.
