Overview: Bantu refers to a large, complex linguistic grouping of peoples in Africa. The Northwest Bantu people cluster encompasses more than eighty ethnolinguistic people groups, only a few of which are larger than 100,000. Most of these people groups are scattered along the Atlantic coast from Cameroon in the north to central Angola in the south. The two sizeable groups within the people cluster are the Lunda, Mbundu of north central Angola and the Bassa of southern Cameroon.
