Mbole People __ "The Mbole are primarily hunters and farmers. The nuclear family is the main unit of production. Women grow the main staples consisting of manioc, bananas, and rice, and they also raise ducks, goats, and chickens, which provide milk, eggs, and the occasional protein rich meal. Men hunt with bows and arrows, using guns when available."
