As part of their traditional culture, the Samburu warriors (morans) in northern Kenya express themselves by images painted in rock shelters. The Samburu ongoing rock art tradition is a unique cultural heritage, but with almost no documentation, protection, and public access. In this project, people in five local communities, together with world-leading experts, will document and safeguard this living cultural heritage, to explore Samburu, male and female identities. Documentation will be used to develop information and a sustainable cultural tourism in northern Kenya. A digital museum will display information on this heritage and its capacity to preserve and transform cultural traditions.
