HUTU … 7

The people of Rwanda are Rwandans. The population of Rwanda is about 85 percent Hutu, who were traditionally farmers. The Tutsi, a warrior people, once made up about 14 percent of the total population, but many have fled into neighboring territories for refuge. To learn more about the Tutsi see the chapter on Burundi in Volume 2. There are also some Twa, a Pygmy tribe of hunters, living in Rwanda, as well as small numbers of Asians and Europeans.
