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
