ABOUT THE TOWN?
The area is mainly inhabited by Iteso, Bukusu and Sabaot communities. The Iteso, who form the majority, is a Nilotic group found in western Kenya and eastern Uganda. The Iteso Kingdom is a traditional and highly respected governance system, based in Uganda. It is believed that the Iteso originated from present-day Sudan, in the Abyssinia highland, and then separated from the Karamojong and moved further south over a period of centuries. The Iteso are mainly agriculturalists, planting cash crops such as cotton and tobacco, as well as staple foods such as millet. Their clan naming system reveals a history of long-standing ethnic interactions with Bantus and northern Nilotic tribes; as a result, customs of the Iteso can be found among neighbouring peoples and vice versa.
This area boasts many cultural and natural features including caves, hills, rivers, and traditional architecture. The Kakapel Community Cultural Centre can organise captivating and enriching experiences for visitors. From Teso District, one can easily travel to Kakamega, Kitale, Kisumu and to Mfangano Island – where there is another community rock art project, managed by the Abasuba Community Peace Museum.
