TUTSI … 57

The people of Burundi are known as the Burundians. The largest group, the Hutu (also known as Bahutu), are traditionally farmers and make up about 85 percent of the population in both Burundi and the neighboring country of Rwanda. The Tutsi (also known as Watutsi, Watusi, Batutsi), a tall warrior people, make up less than 15 percent of the population, but dominate the government and military. For more information on the Hutu, refer to the chapter on Rwanda in Volume 8.
