Oral History

Recording the oral history of the Lamu region is of utmost importance. The languages, traditions, skills, stories and memories of Lamu’s cultures must be recorded before such history is lost forever.

The LCT is in the preliminary stages of compiling an in-depth and complete written and photographic collection of the Lamu area’s oral history. This will be achieved by interviewing the few remaining Lamu elders where such knowledge is still retained.
