Michoacán, Morelia, Michoacán de Ocampo, Mexico Travel Video

Compulsive Traveler goes to Michoacan

Stretching from the highlands of Central Mexico to the Pacific Coast Michoacan is a State that hosts great colonial cities, craft traditions dating back 2500 years and 2 spectacular natural events: the breeding of 40 million Monarch butterflies in the Sierras and the laying of eggs of thousands of marine turtles on the Coast. Animals have good instincts for this sort of thing. If Michoacan is so special for them there must be a good reason. Let’s go and find out.

The Samburu are semi-nomadic pastoralists who herd mainly cattle but also keep sheep, goats and camels. The name they use for themselves is Lokop or Loikop, a term which may have a variety of meanings which Samburu themselves do not agree on. Many assert that it refers to them as "owners of the land" Like the Maasai, women wear colorful beaded necklaces similar to the ones the Rendile women also wear. The number of necklaces is a sign of wealth, often given as dowry. They wear bright clothes, usually red and pink. To protect their eyes from the sun, Samburu warriors (like the Rendile) often paste their hair with ochre which creates a visor. Samburu are very spiritual people, believing and praying every day the God called Ngai. Age determines men's social status: each man has to go through various stages before becoming a powerful elder. less
