Diaspora Community

Kenya House

"Alone a youth runs fast, with an elder slow, but together they go far." —Kenyan proverb

In addition to the tradition bearers and artisans featured, the Folklife Festival celebrated the Kenyan diaspora, who carry its stories, songs, and flavors around the globe. Kenya House was a place for members of the diaspora community to meet, share stories and messages, and even go for a run with Olympic marathon runners.
