    What ethnicity are you? Curious. Never knew certain ethnic groups in the Eastern Congo(going by your flag) had significant Cushite ancestry. I only assumed it was great lake countries like Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi. Please correct my ignorance.
    Apart from banyamulenge of South Kivu, there is Congolese Tutsis that live in North Kivu in areas of Rutchuru near Goma. There is also other people called Ba(Hema), these are not to be mistaken from Ba(Hima) of Uganda. We all are related to Tutsis and Himas, and are all Pastoralists.

    That's so wrong and sooo ignorant! Tutsi is an umbrella term that Europeans used to differentiate all those related pastoral people from the rest of people of the great lakes region. Tutsis were only found in Rwanda, Burundi and even North Kivu. I myself does not consider myself Tutsi, but that's how the world knows me. So, when I'm talking to the world, to ease communication, I accept when they label me Tutsi. However, if I'm talking to someone from the great lakes region, I say, I'm Munyamulenge. Confusing... I know!

    Yeah, when I looked up your ethnic group some sources were saying you guys are sometimes labeled "Congolese Tutsis" I had a feeling something was off.
