From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Elgeyo may also refer to Keiyo, a district in Kenya, or Elgeyo escarpment

The Elgeyo (also known as Keiyo) are an ethnic group that is part the larger Kalenjin ethnic group of nilotic origin. They live near Eldoret, Kenya in the highlands of the Keiyo District. The Elgeyo subsist mainly on grain; and the milk, blood and meat provided by their cattle, sheep and goats. The Elgeyo moved away from the eastern grazing lands of the Great Rift Valley during the expansion of the Maasai tribe. The loss of much of their grazing lands forced them to reduce their herds and rely more on agriculture.
