The Girayama population is living in the Southeastern Kenya and consists of about 150.000 members. They are living from farming and tourism. They are known for their grave posts called Kigango. These high figures have rectangular bodies decorated with geometrical ornaments and a flat round head.
The Giraya population believes that the figures are giving the deceased a new physical body and for this reason they are kept in the home of the deceased.
The posts are only carved for the most important members of certain secret societies like Chama Ya Vaja.
