What Are Their Lives Like?

The Baga Fore people (better known as the Bagafore), are primarily rice farmers.

The Bagafore people have been animists in the past, making offerings to their ancestral and other spirits. But now they are becoming more Islamized, especially as their men marry Muslim women.
