In a year or two, Lekarate (age 9) will be ready to become the companion of a young warrior, or moran. Her parents will build a hut for the couple where they will eat and sleep together. Even though they will become very close during this four- to five-year relationship, sex is strictly forbidden. When their domestic trial comes to an end, Lekarate’s father will probably select a much older man for her to marry. Samburu Tribe. Ndoto Range, Kenya.
