What to experience about Visiting the Maasai ethnic group in Kenya
Way of Life
The Maasai nomadic people live in bomas and work as goat and cattle herders. In the Maasai society, wealth and success are measured in terms of herd ownership. This way of life extends to their diet, which consists mainly of cattle and goat products such as meat, blood and milk. Maasai men are divided by age into groups child, junior warrior and senior warrior, junior elder and senior elder. The young men must be initiated into warrior hood before they can marry. It is also traditional practice that both men and women are circumcised.
Maasai people have a strong belief in God, whom they call Enkai. Like most Kenyans they are warm and welcoming and enjoy entertaining visitors with song and dance as well as high jumping from a standing position, a traditional sport for Maasai men.
The Maasai men have numerous traditions and ceremonies they perform. The best known traditional ceremony is known as the Warrior jumping dance where young Maasai Moran leap into the air from a standing position order to demonstrate strength and agility.
The members of the Maasai wear lush arrays of beaded arnaments, colour their hair red and decorate it with finely plaited sisal fibre.
The Maasai speak the Maasai Language which is an Eastern Nilotic language closely related to Samburu the language of the Samburu people in central Kenya and to Camus spoken south and southeast of Lake Baringo in Kenya. Most Maasai people also speak Swahili an official language of East Africa.
