Luo Cultural Tour

Luo Cultural Tour 

The Luo probably originated in southern Sudan, at Wau, near the confluence of the Meride & Sue Rivers. The Kenya Luo migrated into present day western Kenya via present day eastern Uganda, the first wave arriving sometime around 1500 AD. Arrivals came in at least five waves arriving at different times rather than as a single discrete migration: (1) the Joka-Jok (who migrated from Acholiland; the first & largest migration); (2) Those migrating from Alur; (3) the Owiny (who migrated from Padhola); (4) the Jok’Omolo (perhaps from Pawir); and (5) The Abasuba (a heterogeneous group in southern Nyanza, with Bantu elements).

The present day Kenya Luo traditionally consist of 12 sub-tribes (each in turn composed of various clans & sub-clans): (1) Jo-Gem, (2) Jo-Ugenya, (3) Jo-Seme, (4) Jo-Kajulu, (5) Jo-Karachuonyo, (6) Jo-Nyakach, (7) Jo-Kabundo, (8) Jo-Kisumo (Jo-Kisumu), (9) Jo-Kano, (10) Jo-Asembo, (11) Jo-Uyoma, (12) Jo-Sakwa. ( “Jo-” indicates “people of…”.)

Day 4

This morning you will go on 3-hour boat ride to Ndere Island where you will have lunch. Upon returning to dry land proceed to Kit Mikai, the legendary Crying Stone. This big rock, sacred to the locals, is said to be "crying" because it produces water year round. The locals believe the stone to be a blessing to them, as it is said to be able to cure many diseases. Mothers who have problems breastfeeding are regular worshippers. Later proceed to your homestay for dinner and overnight. Your last evening in the village will be a farewell traditional dinner with cultural dancers and luo traditional foods. (B,L,D)
