    Talking Kenyan - Diversity 🇰🇪

    Since it hasn't been done before, and I'm very surprised it hasn't, since Kenya is so diverse, with many ethnics groups, tribes, languages, religions and cultures…It's Almost like a mini Continent itself.

    They aren't many Kenyans on this Forum, I’m glad though, cause I feel rather special (Like rare jewel).

    Kenya is a beautiful country, and I hope in the further future you may spare the time to go visit there one day...

    Nice pictures.

    Why do the Masai look somewhat different from the other Nilotid groups, like the Dinka and Nuer??

    I still haven't seen any "mainstream" looking Kenyans yet. These are all fringe populations.

    It's mainly because they are Cushitic/Horner admixed.

    Pokot

    The Pokot people (commonly spelled Pökoot, and called Suk in older literature) live in the West Pokot and Baringo Districts of Kenya and in eastern Karamoja in Uganda. They speak Pökoot, language of the Southern Nilotic language family (Nilo-Cushite). the total number of Pokot speakers is at 264 000. They are similar to Turkana, Maasai and Samburu.

    Religion
    Tororot is considered the supreme deity among Pokot. Prayers and offerings are made to him during communal gatherings, including feasts and dances. Such ceremonies are usually presided over by a community elder. Diviners and medicine men also play a significant role in maintaining spiritual balance within the community. Pokot believe in sorcery and use various forms of protection to escape the ill will of sorcerers. Pokot also revere a series of other deities, including sun and moon deities and a spirit who is believed to be connected with death. Dances and feasts are held to thank the god for the generosity and abundance, which he bestows upon Pokot communities.

    Turkana

    The Turkana are a Nilotic people native to the Turkana District in northwest
    Kenya, a dry and hot region bordering Lake Turkana in the east, Pokot, Rendille
    and Samburu to the south, Uganda to the west, and Sudan and Ethiopia to the north. They refer to their land as Turkan.
    Related to Maasai and Samburu.

    Religion

    African traditional religion (Similar religion to Maasai), Christianity (Catholic).
    According to the 2009 Kenyan census, they number close to one million, or 2.5% of Kenyan population, which makes them the third largest Nilotic group in Kenya, after the Kalenjin and the Luo, and slightly more numerous than the neighboring Maasai.
