Kenya is a land of great diversity in its people and cultures. There are about 42 tribes in Kenya with different languages and cultures who unite to become the unique mix of Kenya as a country. You can read more here: https://meac.go.ke/kenya-peoples-and-cultures/. The Luo are fishermen who value education and live around Lake Victoria. Lake Victoria has been invaded by South American water hyacinth, making it more difficult to launch boats and catch fish to feed their families.

Every celebration has food… and dancing!
The Luo’s staple foods are tilapia, sundried meats and chicken eaten with bread made from corn, millet and sorghum flour and served with traditional vegetables. We will gather around a virtual table at this celebration.
The Mwanzo Women’s Catering Group will provide you with some Luo recipes if you would like to cook for our celebration.
If you are not into cooking yourself, think about ordering Kenyan food to enjoy during the party. We will provide recommendations for Kenyan restaurants in the Seattle area where you can order food.
After we eat, Loyce will be showing off some of her LUO dance moves. You will want to dance too as you listen to the rhythm of this Luo song of joy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gi3MeTuA7Hw
Come one and all to celebrate and learn with Mwanzo!
