Transcript of The Ogiek Roar - The Ogiek Tribe Rite of Passage

Who are they?
The Ogiek are an Indigenous people based in Northwestern Tanzania, Southern Kenya and Western Kenya. They are a group of hunter-gatherers. They have also made claims against the Kenyan government against unfair treatment.
Rite of Passage
The young boys and girls of the tribe are first ceremonially circumcised, then secluded from the adults for several months.
