The Pokot people are an agricultural and pastoral tribe inhabiting Kenya and Uganda. The specific group that was documented lives in Laikipia, Kenya. The photos highlight their culture and the environment in which they live. The Community is learning about the importance of Conservation and is changing cultural habits that were harmful to nature. Some women used to wear giraffe tails during the dance performance and important men wore lion skins and ostrich feathers as a symbol of power. Fortunately, the community understands now that this is not right.
