#3 Kenyan Roots & Culture

Today's and tomorrow’s Kenyans are children of the past and as such, the Treasure of the Kenyan Roots and Culture honors the diverse traditions and the multitude of Kenya's 42 indigenous tribes from the three ethno-linguistic groups of the Cushites, the Bantus, and the Nilotes which have produced an overwhelming asset of experience, knowledge, wisdom, values and cultural heritage and practices, such as stories, songs, dances, costumes and jewelry, to name but a few. Kenyan Roots and Culture also entails the heritage of immigrants from Arabia, Asia and Europe, to whom Kenya became home. Peace and prosperity in Kenya can only prevail if these different identities and expressions of Kenyans are respected and cared for.
