MASSAIS AND EDUCATION OF THEIR CHILDREN :


There are still a few years, the Maasai prefered that children stay in the village and look after their cattle but nowadays it is difficult to live exclusively of their fruits of their labor as they are dispossessed of their lands which are now reserved national parks, farmlands. They no longer have enough cattle. The Maasai people become sedentary, and the education system is now seen as a "wealth", a way to escape poverty and improve their standard of living in the future (degrees, employment, acquisition of new flocks ...) without forgetting their traditions.

For celebrations, without killing the cow, massaï men take blood in the jugular vein.
