Abstract:The Kuria, a Bantu-speaking people, live astride the Kenya-Tanzania boundary both in South Nyanza District and Mara Region respectively. The article describes the history of the Kuri before 1900, which seems to fall into four main stages: 1, during which the first groups of people now forming part of modern Kuria people settled the area; 2, when the area was settled mainly by people of Gusii origin; 3, when the area possibly for the first time came into contact with the Luo on the one hand and the Maasai on the other; 4, during which the last groups of its present inhabitants settled the area.
