Diapositiva17 unnamed (2) Diapositiva18

The Lowa communities live in a semi-arid area in Northern Kenya. They belong to the Samburu tribe, a nomad tribe whose economy is based on cattle-raising. They consider agriculture a profane activity and thus their habitat has remained undamaged through the years. They live in manyattas, huts made of clay and branches, in small communities scattered throughout the mountains. The women take care of the household chores, looking after the children, cleaning, cooking and fetching water. The men look after the cattle.
