Transcript of The Kikuyu
people living in kenya, which is about 23%
of Kenya's total population. Kikuyu speak Kikuyu,
a Bantu language,
as their native tongue Most Kikuyu are Christians, and it is difficult to come across one who professes to be anything else.Yet there are other signs, too, that the old ways have not been completely forgotten.
The institution of elderhood may at first sight appear to be defunct, but here too, the Kikuyu have adapted and adopted to the new ways rather than simply discarding the old: it has been estimated that 90% of the Catholic priests in the Nairobi diocese have also been elected as ‘elders’.
The Kikuyu home The Kikuyu’s houses can be quite dispersed and a small shamba or garden surrounds each individual house. The family tries to grow their supply of food in their shamba.
Houses are usually built from local materials such as wooden poles and coconut palm leaves. Some houses, however, have walls made from planks of wood with corrugated iron for the roof. This means that the insides become very warm during the day and cold at night.
