About Bakongo:

Bakongo is an ethnic Bantu group that has the largest representation in the Democratic Republic of Congo. This matriarchal society places high value on independence and traces its history to the Kongo kingdom, which encouraged education, excellence, and equality among its people.

Today, the Democratic Republic of Congo is considered the world's largest source of natural resources, specifically in cobalt and coltan mineral deposits.
