Portrait of an african tribe : the Maasai

Hot Topics Amboseli, Kenya - 27 November 2004
"The Maasai are an indigenous African ethnic group of semi-nomadic people located in Kenya and northern Tanzania, says our member.

Due to their distinctive customs and dress and residence near the many game parks of East Africa, they are among the most well-known of African ethnic groups.

They speak Maa which is a member of the Nilo-Saharan language family that is related to Dinka and Nuer, and are also educated in the official languages of Kenya and Tanzania : Swahili and English.

Although the Tanzanian and Kenyan governments have instituted programs to encourage the Maasai to abandon their traditional semi-nomadic lifestyle, the people have continued their age-old customs.

Recently, Oxfam has claimed that the lifestyle of the Maasai should be embraced as a response to climate change because of their ability to farm in deserts and scrublands."
