PRESS L (BIG ON BLACK)

 

The Rendille tribe inhabits the arid region of northern Kenya. Just like the Borana, they are classified under the broad Eastern Cushitic peoples and have Ethiopia are their original homeland. They were compelled to migrate down south to northern Kenya due to increased rivalry and conflicts with the people of the Oromo tribes mainly over grazing land and water for their livestock. They are said to be related to the Somalis of Somalia. They don't have history with the British colonialists, because their land was too dry to interest them.
