Description

MAASAI documents the customs and traditions of East Africa's pastoral Maasai people. The title traces the journey of the Maasai from the innocence of childhood to the wisdom of old age. It depicts the passage of the young boys through the emorata, or circumcision ceremony, to the eunoto ceremony, undertaken after years of camaraderie and adventure, and signifying the end of the carefree existence of the warrior and the start of new responsibilities as a husband and father. A snapshot of the life of Maasai women, MAASAI documents a culture that may not survive the increasing pressures and constraints of the modern age.show more
