The Maasai live in bomas—groups of houses arranged in a circle around a livestock enclosure. Their lives are simple: women milk cattle, cook and collect water and firewood while men herd livestock.
“The beauty of our Maasai culture is our love for one another,” says one Maasai woman.
However, the Maasai’s lives increasingly depend on the market economy. Women sell jewelry and grains at local markets; some children go to school; cell phones play a growing role in these once isolated communities.
