Introduction / History

The Fang people of Equatorial Guinea are part of the Beti-Fang continuum of Bantu languages, related to the Ewondo and Bulu of Cameroon. There are some significant numbers also in Cameroon and in Gabon. Their traditional territory is the interior rainforest. They are known as the jungle fighters. Their knowledge of the jungle and their ability to survive and function in the lush tropical vegetation is legendary.

As a result of Spanish colonization, the large majority of Fang people are nominally Roman Catholic. But few have personally accepted the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Scripture has never been translated into Fang of EG, although translations exist in Bulu of Cameroon and in a related Fang language in Gabon. One of these could probably be adapted to Fang.
