Samburu tribal girls in the homestead where they live with their family. Wearing traditional beads, Kenyan girls are raised learning how to bead, each bead meaning something special to them.
Samburu tribes raise cattle and goats for their own use, eating the meat, drinking the milk, and drinking the goat’s blood, first heating it over an open fire to sterilize it.
The girls all wear traditional clothing, brightly colored, always topped by beaded necklaces, bracelets and earrings.
The children seem to be constantly smiling which always got me laughing and smiling with me.
This grandmother has two grand-daughters, one on her back. We shared a special moment, when I told her through my guide (as I don’t speak much Swahili) that I also have two grand-daughters. She asked me my name, and when I told her, she told me my name in Swahili…..Sungulia. It was wonderful to make such a connection and see that understanding in her eyes.
