Abstract
When civil administration in Karamoja District began in 1921, parts of the district were being severely overgrazed and the vegetation was changing from savanna to bush. The problem was exacerbated by the administrative policy of allowing Pokot people from Kenya To settle in an area then known as Karasuk, which prior to this time had been Karamojan grazing >territory (Brasnett, 1958). Once the Pokot, or Sukas they were then called, were established in the Karasuk area, they kept up a steady westward expansive pressure and, Again with administrative favour, were allowed to occupy and graze more Karamojan territory from 1921 until 1940 when a rudimentary Boundary was established between the Karamojong and the Pokot along the Kanyangareng River, south of Moroto Mountain and some 16 kilometers east of Atumatak.
