The Kikuyu are the largest ethnic group in Kenya. They speak the Bantu Kikuyu language as a mother tongue. The term Kikuyu is the Swahili form of the native pronunciation Gikuyu. Group members refer to themselves as the Agikuyu. Gikuyu literally means a huge sycamore tree and Agikuyu thus literally refers to the children of the huge sycamore.
