3 rock shelters in Kumi district contain rock paintings that date centuries of years back, probably could have been written in the stone age era. These are the famous Nyero Rock paintings, an attraction that gathers scores annually.
The famous Nyero rock paintings are claimed to have been structured by the very early people who settled in the area. Some sources claims the extinct Batwa clan that currently resides South East of Uganda could be having roots in the area. This was confirmed by several archaeologists who made several comparisons of the prehistoric rock art. Kumi District is mainly occupied by the Itesots at the moment.
