Bantu: "First Faucet"
Summary: The Somali Bantu, historically persecuted in their native Somalia, have been immigrating to the United States, via refugee camps in several surrounding countries, for the past few years. Indianapolis has about 200 people, who arrive regularly, and are being given limited assistance by a local Catholic organization.
