Maasai Villagers

August 28, 2002 | Leave a Comment

Maasai menYoung male villagers — wearing traditional Maasai red clothing — have come to greet us, show us around their village, and perform some traditional dances. About 80 people live in this manata, and they’re all one family: brothers, unmarried sisters, cousins, and the women who have married into the family.

Our guides were Dixon and Peter, sons of the chief.
