Every­day life of Sam­bu­ru war­riors in their vil­lage in north­ern Kenya: look­ing after the herds, singing women, cel­e­brat­ing a ritual as pro­mo­tion to the status of war­riors. But today’s war­riors some­times happen to wear blue hel­mets. Some of the Sam­bu­rus had joined the UN troops in Bosnia to pull apart Euro­peans at war. They talk about their expe­ri­ence: the fear, the shelling, and the money they used to build homes or to buy cattle.
