Staff photo by Kathy Aney Rachael Tengbom speaks about the tradition of female circumcision in Kenya, a practice that is illegal, but still rampant. Now a Kennewick resident, Tengbom grew up in a girl's home after her mother sent her there to save her from mutilation. She spoke to an audience at Blue Mountain Community College in Hermiston earlier this week.
