Culture
The population of Kenya is about 32 million. Almost all are of African descent with the largest minorities being Asians, Europeans and Arabs, although these three minority groups together represent less than 1% of the population. There are numerous tribes found in Kenya. The majority of the tribes are descendants of just two language groups, the Bantu of Western Africa, and the Nilotic from the Nile Valley. As the larger cities attract more people, and as Kenya becomes more like the West, fewer and fewer Kenyans live a traditional tribal life. English and Swahili are the languages taught throughout the country, but there are many other tribal languages. These include Kikuyu, Luhia, Luo and Kikamba as well as a plethora of minor tribal tongues. It's useful for the traveler to have a working knowledge of Swahili, especially outside the urban areas and in remote parts of the country. Another language you'll come across is Sheng, spoken almost exclusively by the younger members of society. A fairly recent development, Sheng is a mixture of Swahili and English along with a fair sprinkling of other languages. Most Kenyans outside the coastal and eastern provinces are Christians of one sort or another, while most of those on the coast and in the eastern part of the country are Muslim. Muslims make up some 30% of the population. In the more remote tribal areas you'll find a mixture of Muslims, Christians and those who follow their ancestral tribal beliefs.

Culture of Kenya
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search A woman in a traditional Kenyan outfit Kenya has no one culture that identifies it. With such diverse regional peoples such as the Swahili along the coast, several pastoralist communities mainly in the North and the different communities in Central and Western regions, having a mutually acceptable cultural identification is difficult. There are about 42 different ethnic groupings in Kenya - each of these with its own unique culture, but majority of them with intertwining cultural practices brought about by the close resemblance in the languages, the similar environment and physical proximity of the ethnic groups. The ethnic groups are grouped into larger sub-groups - based on their cultural and linguistic similarities. There are three major unifying categories of languages: the Bantu speaking people of the Coastal region, the Central Highlands and the Western Kenya Region, The Nilotes who are mainly found in the Great Rift Valley and the Lake Victoria Region and the Cushites who are mainly composed of pastoralists and nomads in the drier North Eastern part of the country. Of note is that these sub-groups span a vast area of not just Kenya, but the East, Central and Southern African Region as a whole.

Introduction to Kenya Culture
This page gives an overview about Kenya culture: both on the national psyche, lifestyle, rules in social life, the place of religion and the tribes, and more. Also have a look at my separate pages about Kenya art, music and language.
National and tribal culture
There are between 40 and 70 tribes in Kenya, depending on how you count. Although their role in Kenya culture is slowly diminishing, itís still one of the most important facts of social life. As a result, national consciousness is quite weak.
The focus on the tribe is holding the country back in some ways. For example, tribalism has led to favoritism and corruption in politics. Members of one tribe Ďhelpí each other with benefits and voters all too often support a politician because of his ethnicity, rather than his ideas and capabilities. Family, however, is even more important than tribe in Kenya culture. Itís common for a family to live together with uncles, nieces etc. Family bonds are strong. Although itís common for a father and mother to leave their children with family and work in another city, this is usually inspired by the wish to support their family better. Daycare doesnít exist in Kenya although rich families may hire nannies. Women are often the backbone of village life, as they do the bulk of the work. While women are visible in society, and can get into higher paying jobs, their role in society remains limited and often rigid. Read more about the

THE MASAAI:
The Masaai are nomadic herdsmen, found in Southern Kenya. According to tradition, the Masaai believed that their God granted them cattle, and therefore they believe its okay to steal cattle from other tribes. Maasai economy is centered around Cattle, and they are accumulated as a sign of wealth. Their main diet is cow's milk and blood which is mixed together. Some Masaai are farmers, who trade crops like vegetable and corn. The Maasai are best known for their beautiful ornamentation and beadwork of their bodies.
THE AKAMBA
The Akamba are Bantu-speaking people, who migrated from the south about 200 years to live in the east of Nairobi towards Tsavo national park. They are renowned for their fighting ability, they continue to be well represented in the Kenyan defense forces and security organizations to date.
THE KIKUYU
According to tradition, the Kikuyu clans -Achera, Agachiku, Airimu, Ambui, Angare, Anjiru, Angui, Aithaga, and Aitherandu- were formed from the nine daughters of Gikuyu and Mumbi.

Insight into Kenya Cultures and Kenya Traditions
There are more than 70 tribal groups among the Africans in Kenya. Distinctions between many of them are blurred - western cultural values are becoming more ingrained and traditional values are disintegrating. Regardless of these influences though, each group has left its mark on the civilization of today and creates one of the most fascinating cultures in the world. English and Swahili are the languages taught throughout the country, but there are many other tribal languages. These include Kikuyu, Luhia, Luo and Kikamba as well as many other minor tribal tongues. It is useful for the traveler to have a basic knowledge of Swahili, especially outside the urban areas and in remote parts of the country. Most Kenyans outside the coastal and eastern provinces are Christians of one sort or another, while most of those on the coast and in the eastern part of the country are Muslim. Muslims make up some 30% of the population. In the more remote tribal areas you'll find a mixture of Muslims, Christians and those who follow their ancestral tribal beliefs.

Kenya Culture
Kenya culture is a fascinating way of life that blends the traditions of thousands of years of African social evolution with the modern influences of the 20th century. The multifaceted culture of Kenya is expressed in different forms, ranging from its people and language, food, music and dance, art, artifacts, theatre and literature to its ethnic values and ethical norms. Combined with other traditions, these forms of expression and lifestyle form an identity that is uniquely Kenyan.
The Kenyan population is comprised of more than 40 ethnic groups , each with its own unique dialect. As Kenya's national languages, Swahili and English bridge the communication gap and unite Kenyans as a single nation.
The Kenyan diet is comprised of foods rich in ethnic diversity. Popular staple foods include ugali , rice, bread, chapatti (a type of Indian bread), beef, chicken, goat, tilapia and an assortment of fresh vegetables and fruits. Nyama choma is regarded as Kenya's national dish . Nyama choma is a form of charcoal-grilled beef or goat meat, and is very popular in authentic Kenyan restaurants and pubs. In times of celebration and on special occasions such as Christmas and wedding ceremonies, it is customary for Kenyans to kill and roast a goat or cow. The Kenyan diet also includes tea. In fact, in Kenya, anytime is tea time. When it comes to drinks, Kenya tea in the form of

16. Kenya Culture Is A Rich Blend Of African, Arab And Western Influences
Kenya culture is a rich mix of African tribal, Western, Asian and Arab subcultures. But, alongside the national customs, Kenya boasts some fairly discrete tribal cultures.
http://www.kenya-travel-packages.com/kenya-culture.html
Kenya Culture is an Electric Blend of African, Arab and Western Influences
Obviously, Kenya culture is largely a collection of the customs of the 40-odd Kenya tribes . But while African customary practices dominate the cultural landscape, Western, Arab and Asian influences have also stamped their indelible mark on the culture of Kenya. So it is not usual to find Kenyans wearing jeans, t-shirts and sneakers enjoying the Asian food of pilau, chapati and samosas just as much as they do their staple dishes of ugali, sukuma wiki and nyama choma.
National Languages
English and Swahili are widely spoken in Kenya. These languages lend a semblance of unity to a country where well over 40 local languages are spoken. However, neither language may be spoken in some remote corners of the country where local vernaculars reign supreme. Pidgin Swahili referred to as "sheng" abounds and is popular with the youth. So, rather than "habari," you will hear "sasa" being used as a greeting with the expected reply being "poa" or "fit."

Kenya Culture
Kenya culture is most evidenced in music. Maasai ceremonial dances and songs celebrate hunting victories and the strength of their powerful warriors. The Kamba are expert drummers and acrobatic dancers . Taarab is one style of music that will have you swaying to Arabic rhythms and dancing to the beat of African drums and bells. Often including a large chorus, and stringed instruments, the popular Taarab style is evolving to incorporate elements of Hindu music. Yet another style of music popular in Kenya culture is the beautiful sound of the Nyatiti, a lyre-like stringed instrument. The Nyatiti creates a lilting harmony to any song.
Religion
The diverse Kenyan culture welcomes people of all religions, including Muslims, Roman Catholics and Protestants. You will also find Hindus and Sikhs practicing their religion in Kenya. By far the majority are Christians, some of whom temper their Christianity with a gentle blend of their ancient tribal wisdoms.
Housing
Lets say that 20% of Kenyans live in modern houses. Interestingly enough, 5% of the city dwellers live in majestic homes with
