Photograph by David Chancellor @chancellordavid - dawn, northern Kenya - a while ago now I was asked by a Samburu Moran (warrior ) to hold the back of his young brother during his initiation. I had no idea at the time what this meant, or the significance of it to us both, but I did know it was an incredible honour. I met him this week and we talked briefly before he returned to his friends and football. I made him shoes out of cow hide and fitted them to his feet; he would wear only these for the month of his metamorphosis into a warrior. I struggled to sleep in my tent not quite knowing what to expect, listening to the songs of warriors and initiates from the surrounding villages. At 02.00 I left the tent and in darkness arrived at his hut which was already surrounded by elders singing songs of courage and support, songs that will help him be strong and carry him into manhood. I’d been told what to expect and what I was required to do, but now when for once I was part of the story, and not an observer, it felt oh so very different. I was to hold his back as the nurse circumcised him. He stood on a cow skin at the door of the home that he’d been brought up in. He was blessed and milk poured on to his shaven head causing him to sit abruptly on the skin. I sat behind him, my legs on either side of his body, I placed my left hand over is forehead and eyes and held his head very tightly to my chest. My right hand I held tightly across his chest, my hand on his heart. He couldn’t see the nurse now sitting in front of him, or the elders surrounding us, but he could hear them, and I could see and hear them both. As the nurse skilfully worked his heart exploded under my hand, and then calmed to a steady beat. We lifted him back into his home and quietly left. He had not made a sound, he was a warrior. I returned as the sun came up, and throughout the day to check on him. I hadn’t expected this, hadn’t expected to see, and more extraordinary feel the birth of a warrior.

Photograph by David Chancellor @chancellordavid - a Samburu initiate carries the birds he’s hunted with bow and arrow, around a crown on his head, northern Kenya. Once an initiate has passed through circumcision on his journey to manhood, he will take up the sticks collected earlier and make a bow and arrow. The arrows are tipped with gum collected some weeks earlier at the very beginning of his journey. For the next weeks he will hunt specific small birds; if successful, he will skin them and place the skins around a crown on his head. The more birds on his crown, the greater his hunting skills. However, certain birds are considered extremely bad luck and killing them inauspicious. Birds also appear extremely sensitive to the smell of the gum placed on the arrows which are designed to make the process more difficult, and therefore the task more challenging. All this is designed to get him moving as quickly as possible after the process of circumcision. The birds signify his flight from his home and journey into the warrior clan. When he passes into the next stage of his metamorphosis, he will give the crown of birds to his mother to remember him by. She will wear them around her neck along with his necklace of blue beads, and beetle wings given prior to circumcision. This is living #withbutterfliesandwarriors #northernkenya #conservation

Photo by David Chancellor @chancellordavid | A Samburu bride leaves her mother's house to move to her husband's village, in northern Kenya. Tradition dictates that during the journey she must not look back. A Samburu legend tells of a young bride who was about to leave her family’s house. Her father gave precise instructions, including not to look back, but the girl was so sad she could not resist a last glance at the home where she had grown up. During the night, the god Nkai, furious with the disobedient girl, decided to punish her. Her body began to swell until it broke through the hut roof, finally turning into a majestic elephant. The Samburu believe that all elephants descend from this girl, and that elephants and the Samburu have blood ties. It's believed that if elephants find a dead man, they place bundles of grass or branches on his grave, and similarly if a Samburu finds a dead elephant, he takes a bundle of green grass, spits on it, and rolls it inside the skull cavity. It's considered a sign of respect and a blessing: the grass is a symbol of peace, and the spit equates to rain, a divine gift in this arid region. It’s traditions like this that we must take time to learn and understand their significance. It’s vital that as we engage with communities, we understand their beliefs. #withbutterfliesandwarriors #northernkenya #kenya #usuanthropology Thanks to @natgeo and @chancellordavid for posting!

Hearing trumpeting and fanfare in the distance - Saruni Rhino lodge manager Sammy knew something was occurring yesterday! Followed by a herd of Sera's elephants walking slowly across the dry river bed on which our camp Saruni Rhino is located - the cause soon become clear. A newborn elephant calf of a few hours old! Wishing it safe and well!
