History of the Karamojong in Uganda


The Karamojong relocated into Uganda around 1600 years ago from Ethiopia and settled within Moroto Mountain, they speak the A karamojong language which is translated as “the tired old men who stayed behind.”  Uganda accommodates over 370,000 Karamojong at the moment who are sparsely populated. Karamoja region gets fewer visitors as it is not known by many tourists although it does not disappoint once visited because of its rich culture.


 The Karamojong area was not a white man’s region because they failed to control them. Karamojong is a nomadic pastoralist who was well known for moving from one place to another with their castles as they look for food and water for their animals in the neighboring districts of Sudan and Kenya.



The Karamojong people almost move half-naked as Nilotic pastoralists who are proud of their culture while seen practicing daily. However, some Karamojong has embraced the new trending cultural change in the country and technology.
