Clan Totem: Buffalo
There are 32 clans in our community. Before colonial evictions, our clan used to reside in Chepkitale. Our clan name was derived from massive death of family members and they were at risk of extinction.
The origin of the clan is Sebei, Uganda and its traced back to 17th Century. Members of our clan are also found in Pook, Someek and Teso. It came into recognition around 1814. Initially clan members were hunters and gatherers but shifted to pastoralists. They protected the community against external attacks.
They can intermarry with all clans.
