The Laarim live in small villages in a place called the Boya Hills. Their life revolves around cows. They breed cows, eat their meat, drink their blood and milk, and sleep on their hides. They are very interested in spiritual things. Most Laarim people believe in a supreme being who controls all of life, including the health of their cows. They believe spirits of their ancestors are still present on the earth. They talk to them through prayers and offerings which they perform together in particular places.
