Maasai are a nomadic tribe near northern 
Tanzania, primarily cattle herders – they still
have grazing rights in the national parks.  Thin
and tall, the Maasai warriors are known for
 jumping, a necessary skill to see predators 
from a distance.  Mike gave it a go!
Maasai women answer back with a
rhythmic dance in which they rock up and

down flipping their necklaces against their
collarbones.  Necklace colors represent
nature – blue for sky, red for blood.

Historically barefoot – but modern days lead
to modern ways.  Old tires are recycled.  Sorry,

Phil Knight, no Nike sales here.
Maasai make fire from twigs (the boy scout way),
 then use donkey dung, which is dry and fibrous.
