The Samburu Tribe of Kenya
They live in north central Kenya and hold their traditions dear to heart. The Samburu tribe of Kenya are closely related to the Maasai of Kenya but remain different in more ways than one. They are warriors who live on milk diets and only eat meat during special ceremonies. They live in small clusters of 5-10 families in Manyattas which are huts surrounded by thorn fences.
Samburu means butterfly and they believe in being free to live life their own way. They see dancing as a very important way of life and paint their faces to go with their traditional outfits which consists of a red cloth called Shukka which closely resembles a skirt and is wrapped around paired with a white sash. Bracelets and earrings vibrant with bold colours are worn to compliment the Shukkas along with beaded necklaces.
