Immediately following the ritual, a special drink of cows blood and milk is mixed for the newly-initiated warrior to drink.Circumcision is an important ritual for all young men in Samburu culture. It is a ritual that marks the end of childlike things and ultimately sets the young man on the path to warrior status. The circumcision ritual happens once every 8 to 10 years and the boys, aged as young as 8 and sometimes as old as 20 are circumcised en masse in a 2 month-long ceremony as the circumcisor travels from village to village to complete his task. The event is an emotionally charged event and boys wait for what must be an eternity during the last week for the circumcision to take place. It is performed by a specially-anointed man whose skills are passed down from generation to generation.For each boy, the ceremony is performed without anaesthetic, only cold water to lull what must be overwhelming pain. Yet each boy faces the ritual with the utmost dignity – for even to flinch
