Kikuyu Books Kikuyu Folktales - Their Nature and Value by Rose Mwangi

Our Story

A short story

November 2018. It is during this month that I decided to take on a journey to learn more about my People (The Agĩkũyũ) – Culture, History & Way of Life. Back then I didn’t know where to begin and the road ahead seemed to fork into many paths. The first path I choose was searching the web for materials and following people and pages which shared the content that I found relevant. That path later branched out and I found myself wandering in Nairobi and Kikuyuland towns hunting for books and resources with Kikuyu history, stories, and folklores. During these wanderings, I have collected a number of books which I believe could be of help to anyone who, like me, is interested in exploring our origin and rich culture. If that’s you, I welcome you to Kikuyuland Bookshelf: Wĩrute Gĩkũyũ.
