with Peter Lenges
Join Samburu Elder, Peter Lenges, for a slideshow of photos from his most recent journey home to Kenya, where young men in his region continue a tradition of circumcision, transitioning them into warrior status.Alert to the potential transmission of HIV by sharing one knife and knowledgeable of cultural taboos, Lenges successfully intervened in four villages.Affecting 200 young men's lives, Lenges will share his story of determination to support his people through a healthful and prosperous time of Western influence-while struggling to maintain key features of Samburu language and culture.
Lenges has been a cultural trainer for the U.S. Peace Corps, an Officer for Kenya Customs and Exercise, an auto mechanic, he speaks fluent Swahili, and he holds several degrees from local Washington institutions.But he claims that his most important training came from his grandmothers who taught him the ancient Samburu language, rarely spoken even in rural areas of Kenya.His knowledge of Samburu values and oral tradition coupled with his experience transitioning between continents have heightened his concern for his people as Western ways influence indigenous lives.Join us for an afternoon of storytelling and a unique perspective into the traditions of the Samburu.When: Saturday June 14, 2008 - 3:00 PMWhere: Camp Long Lodge 5200 35th Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98126 Directions
