The land of the Masai

Masai are famous for their fearsome reputations as warriors and cattle-rustlers. Traditional Maasai lifestyle centres around their cattle which constitute their primary source of food.

The measure of a man’s wealth is in terms of cattle and children. A Maasai religious belief relates that God gave them all the cattle on earth, leading to the belief that rustling cattle from other tribes is a matter of taking back what is rightfully theirs.
