Turkana: life and livestock

Turkana men herd cattle, sheep and goats, protecting their livestock from rivals in the dry Turkana region in the north of Kenya. The men are armed with clean, well-maintained rifles because of frequent feuding with other tribes. Livestock are at the centre of Turkana life.
