The Karamojong are semi-nomadic herders in the remote Karamoja region of Uganda. They are very proud on their history, identity, lifestyle, language, dress code, dance and norms. In the life of the Karamojong cattle play the central role. Cattle are seen like a currency but they are also an important element in the negotiations for a bride or to gain status. The Karamojong are in constant conflict with other tribes in Uganda, Sudan and Kenya due to frequent cattle raids. This could be partly due to a traditional belief that the Karamojong own all the cattle by a divine right. Trough the use of heavy weapons the raids became more and more violent. These raids have now been reduced through disarmament by the government. That has been heavily criticized and not only solved problems.
