Bead ornaments are popular in most Kenyan communities. Almost every Kenyan community wore some form of beadwork, though the patterns, colors, and types of beads varied according to socio-cultural context. In Kenya and most of eastern Africa, beadwork was primarily a female activity. It can be worn around the neck, as bracelets, as adornments on the head, on the waist, and on the legs. In some cases, beadwork included charms for personal protection. Beads were also used to embellish a variety of clothing and household items.

About the Tribe

Kikuyu are Bantu-speaking people who live near Mount Kenya in the highlands of south-central Kenya. They are also known as Gikuyu or Agikuyu and are Kenya's largest ethnic group. They are thought to have been part of a precolonial Bantu long-term migration from Central Africa or Tanzania. They were also part of the Kenyan communities that led the Mau Mau movement and the Kikuyu Central Association (KCA) in the fight for Kenya's independence.
