Abstract:

Each morning and evening, the Rendille elders in north Kenya pray together - their prayer centered on their camels. In this driest part of Africa's semidesert, the Rendille grow no crops. They keep sheep and goats but depend largely on their camels, the only domestic animals that can convert thorn bushes into milk and meat. As the herds quickly exhaust the vegetation in an area, they must be taken wherever there is sufficient grazing - even 200 miles away. This arduous job can only be done by young, fit men with no domestic ties - so each male Rendille youth must serve 14 years as a warrior herdsman before he can settle down. The Rendille are experiencing the worst drought in nearly a century; having survived droughts before, they are confident they will again. But there is another problem: the young herdsmen are beginning to feel the lure of big-city life in Nairobi.
