Peoples of Kenya
The El Molo
The El Molo are the smallest ethnic group in Kenya, numbering about
300 people. They live on lava rock of the southeast shore of Lake Turkana.
Their dwellings resemble igloos, built from what scrub vegetation of
the volcanic wasteland has to offer.
The tiny population fishes the lake for giant Nile perch; occasionally
they hunt crocodiles and hippos. The El Molo drink water directly from
the lake which brings them many medical problems.
Despite these people suffer badly from lack of food and fresh water,
they seldom show desperation in their faces.
