This chapter discusses Indigenous knowledge and ways the Turkana people of Kenya interpret the environment and nature for surviving with their livestock. Turkana are among the minority ethnic communities of Kenya whose socioeconomic activity is pastoralism (livestock herding). The Turkana are still rooted in their traditional 1 culture and lifestyle, and as result of their commitment to their culture, the mainstream politically correct communities of Kenya who had the privilege of being in contact with Western culture continue to marginalize them economically, socially and culturally.
