- Birth of a new born was followed by a thanks giving celebration.
- Naming was done depending on the season and circumstance. Children born at night were named differently with children born at night. Children born during drought were named differently with children named during harvest.
- Circumcision for both boys and girls is one of the most important rituals among the Samburu.
- For boys, circumcision marks the initiation into Moran (warrior) life; for girls, it signifies becoming a woman.
- Once circumcised, a girl/woman can be given away in an arranged marriage to start her own family. Sadly, this practice has seen girls as young as 12 years old get married to men old enough to be their grandfathers.
