The Bushongo are an ethnic group from the Congo River and surrounding areas in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The creation god in Bushongo mythology is called Bumba. The god Bumba is said to have vomited forth the sun, moon, earth, plants and animals, and then humanity. Bomazi is the ancestor-god of the Bushongo.
The Bushongo creation story was made into an animated film called Throwing up the Earth, directed and animated by Margriet Westerhof of the Netherlands.
