Become part of the Datoga tribe and support the Busara Project by wearing a Datogan bracelet. These bracelet's are rarities; you will not even find them in a local African market. They must be special ordered and ours have been marked and made specifically for the Busara Project.
How long these bracelets have been worn by the Datoga tribe is unknown, since the African's only have generations as a measure of time. The Datogan's are over 3,000 years old and little is archived about them. The bracelets are worn to show that the wearer is Datogan. If a warrior comes upon another person wearing this bracelet it is a tribal definition of belonging, similar to the Irish wearing a claddagh ring or the Jewish star of David.
The hand-marked slashes indicate the wearer's clan and then family name. It is not uncommon to see cattle or goats with similar markings (not as many of course!).
Each bracelet is also said to help the Datogans achieve mental and physical balance, as well as ward off evil. But truth be told, when other tribes see the bracelet distinguishing that the wearer as Datogan, they run in fear. Datogans are fierce warriors with little tolerance.
Remember, only donations of over $100 will receives one of these unique bracelets.
