There is a tribe in Africa that believes Europe is the afterlife, and all its inhabitants are spirits!

Most people in America want to travel at some point in their lives to Europe to appreciate it's beauty and see it's many wonderful things that it has to offer.

In fact, Europe is one of the most beautiful continents in the world, with many beautiful countries and so much culture and fun stuff to do. To some it might sound like paradise… LITERALLY.

The Mbendjele Yaka Pygmies of northern Congo-Brazzaville. They are forest-living hunter-gatherers considered the first inhabitants of the region by themselves and their farming neighbours, the Bilo.

They avoid contact with the "exterior world" to maintain autonomy and believe Europe is the afterlife, and all Europeans are spirits.

The Mbdenjele Yaka Pygmies hope that someday they’ll be born again as Europeans!
