Maasai: the authentic people of Kenya - a tourist favorite
The Maasai tribe is the most
authentic ethnic tribe of Kenya.
The Maasai tribe (or Masai) is a unique and popular tribe due to their long preserved culture. Despite education, civilization and western cultural influences, the Maasai people have clung to their traditional way of life, making them a symbol of Kenyan culture.
The Maasai, semi-nomads who graze huge herds of cattle and goats on the vast grasslands of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, need the good news of Jesus Christ presented in word and deed. The Maasai also need education, water, sustainable food sources, and, most urgently, a semi-permanent church structure since they worship under the tree, a medical care and healthcare education.
