image for Tiny Lost African Tribe Found
Tiny People of the Silkyfist.

An undiscovered tribe of tiny people has been found in a previously uncharted province of the Western Coastal area of Africa.

Amazingly, some of the children only stand three inches high and the tallest, the tribal leader stands just six inches.

By some incredible fluke, the tribe has developed musical instruments that will seem familiar. Each instrument has its own western counterpart and goes some way to proving that certain aspects of society will develop regardless of the environment.

The people of this tribe speak an ancient African dialect that has no vowels whatsoever. The tribe is known as the slkyfjst (pronounced silk-ee-fist).

They have built a little town and have little chairs and houses and even a little town hall. The town band are seen here playing one of the current silkyfest pop hits called lpnvxwtt (loop-en-werteetee).

Thanks to an EU transport grant of £23.6m, work will soon begin on developing a railway system to help the silkyfist people to get to neighbouring towns and villages.

Hornby Railways Africa begin work on this within the next 6 months.
