While researching more on thatching techniques I stumbled across a flikr site that was all about Turkana. I thought I would share, though some of the images may seem familiar. It gives a good sense of what one might come across in the area.
– Turkana people, with nomadic traditions do not build for the permanent nor do they take building materials with them when they move. Which also means that have to be simple to build
-Cattle is important to them– relationship between the houses and the cattle
– built “out of the sun”
