I. The Turkana. The Turkana occupy the arid region of Kenya which lies west and immediately south of Lake Rudolf. They are probably relative newcomers having pushed into Kenya from Uganda within the past hundred years. They are perhaps the most fierce of all the Nilohamitic tribes and are unusual in that they do not circumcise but do pierce the lower lip, filling the hole with a wooden or ivory plug. On ceremonial occasions they wear magnificent ostrich feather head dresses and if possible leopard skin capes.
