A native Turkana man tends to his livestock in Nariokotome, an arid desert area of northwest Kenya

A native Turkana man tends to his livestock in Nariokotome, an arid desert area of northwest Kenya. For native 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.
