Who is the Typical Ham? Amateur Radio operators come from all walks of life -- doctors, students, kids, politicians, truck drivers, movie stars, missionaries and even your average neighbor next door. They are of all ages, sexes, income levels and nationalities. Whether through Morse Code on an old brass telegraph key, voice communication on a hand-held radio or computerized messages transmitted via satellite, all hams use radio to reach out to the world.
They left lower savanna grasslands for higher and cooler regions with reliable rainfall. As a result of this migration, their traditional emphasis on cattle was supplemented by farming and an increasing importance of crops in their economy.
Bantu agriculturalists, with whom the Luo increasingly interacted, exchanged many customs with them. Along with the Luhya, the Luo are the second largest ethnic group in the country, behind the Gikuyu.
Most Luo live in western Kenya in Western province or in the adjacent Nyanza province, two of the eight provinces in Kenya. Some Luo live to the south of Kenya in Tanzania.
Many Luo also live in Nairobi. Most Luo maintain strong economic, cultural, and social links to western Kenya, which they consider home. Over the past years, the Luo have migrated slowly from the Sudan to their present location around the eastern shore of Lake Victoria.
This area changes from low, dry landscape around the lake to more lush, hilly areas to the east. The provincial capital of Kisumu is the third-largest city in Kenya and is a major cultural center for the Luo.
The two national languages of Kenya are English and KiSwahili. English, derived from the British colonial era before Kenya's independence inis the official language of government, international business, university instruction, banks, and commerce.
It is taught throughout Kenya in primary and secondary schools. KiSwahili is the primary language of many coastal populations in Kenya and has spread from there throughout East Africa, including Luoland. Today, the KiSwahili language serves as a language of trade and commerce in urban markets and rural towns.
Nowadays, KiSwahili is also taught in Kenyan primary and secondary schools. In addition, radio, television, and newspaper materials are available in these two languages.
Nevertheless, the indigenous language of the Luo, referred to as Dholuo, is for most people the language of preference in the home and in daily conversation.
Dholuo is taught in primary schools throughout Luoland. This is particularly impressive because these languages are from three very distinct language families with drastically different grammatical principles and vocabulary.
Children enjoy playing language games in Dholuo. Among these is a tongue-twister game. For example, children try to say without difficulty, Atud tond atonga, tond atonga chodi, which means, "I tie the rope of the basket, the rope of the basket breaks.
Even young Luo teenagers, who nowadays live in Nairobi and rarely visit Luoland, nevertheless have learned to speak Dholuo fluently. Children are given names that correspond to where they were born, the time of day, or the day of the week.
Even the kind of weather that prevailed at the time of a child's birth is noted. For example, one born during a rain storm is called Akoth male or Okoth female. Just about every Luo also has a pet name used among close friends.
They are traditionally recited in the siwindhe, which is the home of a widowed grandmother. Luo boys and girls gather there in the evenings to be taught the traditions of their culture.
In the evenings, after people have returned from their gardens, they gather to tell and listen to stories. In the siwindhe, however, grandmothers preside over storytelling and verbal games.
Riddles take the form of competitive exchanges where winners are rewarded by "marrying" girls in a kind of mock pretend marriage situation. Friendly arguments often erupt over interpretations of riddles. One riddle, for example, asks the question, "My house has no door," which is answered by "an egg.
Proverbs are another part of the siwindhe discussions and are common in everyday use as well. Some examples are, "The eye you have treated will look at you contemptuously," "A hare is small but gives birth to twins," and "A cowardly hyena lives for many years.
Such questions as, Why do people die? For example, the story known as "Opondo's Children" is about a man called Opondo whose wife continuously gave birth to monitor lizards instead of human babies.Read Introduction from the story After School Club by SubLGJess (Jessie) with 22, reads.
