Abstract:

This collection of 17 documents is about the Okiek. Okiek is a collective name for a number of dispersed groups who speak a common language and live in the highland areas of west-central Kenya and northern Tanzania. The earliest document is by the traveler Hollis who writes on Okiek beliefs (1909). The main ethnographers who did their fieldwork in three different periods are Huntingford (1920s and 1930s), Blackburn (1960s) and Kratz (1970s and 1980s). Blackburn returned in the early 1990s for some additional fieldwork. He has written an overview of the ethnography and origins of the Okiek (1974). Lambert (1949) also examined the history and origins of the Okiek. Huntingford provides a basic survey of the culture (1953), as well as more focused articles on economy and religion (1929), social organization (1952), and political organization (1949). Blackburn's other work focuses on economy and ecology, including resource use and intertribal relations (1982), resource management (1986), and dispute management and social change (1996). Kratz's work focuses on changes in gender relations and ritual (1991, 1990, 1993). Ashdown (2009) discusses Ndorobo (Okiek) worldview and its affect on community morals and welfare.
