Typically, when a baby is born, the town where the birth took place is filled with excitement and celebration. But in the El Molo tribe of Kenya, delivery elicits conflicting emotions since, while it is reason for celebration, it also necessitates the death of someone in order to maintain the population below one hundred.
One of the more than 70 tribes in Kenya, the EL MOLO, also known as the “Hunters of the Jade Sea,” primarily resides in a small village on the beaches of Lake Turkana in the Masarbit south district of Kenya’s northern Eastern Province, south of Loiyangalani. Additionally, they go by the names Elmolo, Dehes, Fura-Pawa, and Ldes.
There are reportedly only 99 people living in El Molo, including men, women, and children. El Molo, which is a member of the Cushitic branch of the Afro-Asiatic language family, is their native tongue.
El Molo people are known as a distinctive tribe due to their cultural, customary, and spiritual beliefs, one of which is that for there to be a balance between life and death, someone else must die for every child that is born.
Afrimax English recently traveled to the El Molo neighborhood to learn more about the people there, including their culture, way of life, and access to basic necessities.
