Interacting with the Maasai

Posted By Harveen Hans on 03 Jun 2015
So far it has been an absolutely incredible experience and a great honour to be able to sit down and interact with the beautiful indigenous people of Tanzania and Kenya. The Maasai are considered a warrior tribe and they lead a semi - nomadic way of life where they have no attachments to any possessions really and their wealth is essentially measured by the amount of cattle and livestock they keep. Globalization has had a huge impact on indigenous communities world wide, however, the objective and philosophy of our Maasai English Community class is to preserve the Maasai culture while also teaching them English conversational skills as a lot of them would like to seek employment in community based tourism and even become tour guides as they have plenty of knowledge of the land.
