The Arbore are pasturalists living in the northern tip of Lake Chew/Lake Bau in the Southern Rift Valley. They supply their neighbours with small stocks of soghum and are highly regarded for their spiritual life and successful agriculture in the arid climate of the delta of River Limo.
The young women usully wear a black cloth over their heads and an abundance of beaded jewellery.
