A native Turkana woman adorned with beaded necklaces and earrings made from discarded watch straps is seen in Nariokotome, an arid desert area of northwest Kenya

A native Turkana woman adorned with beaded necklaces and earrings made from discarded watch straps is seen in Nariokotome, an arid desert area of northwest Kenya. For Turkanas, an ethnic group who are traditionally semi-nomadic pastoralists, walking long distances to collect water for themselves and their animals is common practice, but climate change and droughts mean many of them are adapting to agro-pastoralism or fishing in Lake Turkana, seen as taboo in some of the Turkana clans.
