Video by David Chancellor @chancellordavid  | Sound on! Off to a wedding in northern Kenya with the warriors of the Samburu. The moran (warriors) of the Samburu, such as these, play a vital role in the conservation of Kenya’s wildlife and preservation of the ecosystems that support it. Such community engagement is essential if wildlife and human populations are to coexist at all, particularly in such a complicated environment, which is prone to drought, flood, and tribal conflict. Right now we are poised between the old and the new. A new generation of moran are being initiated, and the previous generation have been granted permission to marry. We can only hope that the next generation will support the continued presence of wildlife in this region, where livestock and people precariously coexist. We are bathed in the songs of weddings, and those of initiates. To see more, follow me here @chancelllordavid  this is living with #butterfliesandwarriors

Curious, does the word “Moran” mean warrior ? It is my surname and I have never seen it used this way. Can you explain ?? I would love to know more about why the word moran is used here
