The El Molo people are fisherfolk living in a land of pastoralists. They keep animals, too, but mostly as a living form of cash. They speak an endangered language and harvest fish sustainably from the largest desert lake in the world, Lake Turkana, seen in the backdrop. While the rights of Kenya’s indigenous peoples are protected on paper, dams across the border in Ethiopia are only one of the factors threatening the existence of the El Molo.
