On this trip, you will learn how local women prepare food & cook, weave Necklaces & Wrist bands, learn how to milk goats, and many other lessons from the community and their culture which they have preserved The Maasai may have been expert pastoralists but they were also famed and feared as warriors, in earlier days warfare was often necessary because the Maasai required large swathes of territory for their animals to graze, a fact which often brought them into conflict with neighboring peoples. Between 1500 and 1800 CE, societies in East Africa were still very much taking shape with a very large number of quite separate communities. The Maasai (or Masai) people are an East African tribe who today principally occupy the territory of southern Kenya and northern Tanzania, and who speak the language of the same name. The Nilo-Saharan Maasai migrated southwards to that region in the 16/17th centuries CE, and they thrived thanks to their skills in animal husbandry, especially the herding of cattle. Maasai warriors are particularly famous for their height, stamina, and striking red hair and their success in warfare brought them domination of the Rift Valley grasslands. The Maasai Mara game reserve in southern Kenya is named in honor of the tribe which still lives there.
