Favorite thing: The Pokot live in Western Kenya, around Cherengani hills. They have traditionally remained aloof from western cultural and developmental unfluences. Obsessed with passion for cattleownership, the Pokot daily sing a songs of praise to their cattle, telling them they are more beautiful and worth more than their women. According to the Pokot legend, every man's greatest desire is to posses a cow with one horn pointing forwards and the other one pointing backwards. Awig of painted mud on th head indicates a man has reached maturity.
