Cérémonie traditionnelle Masaï

Concours de sauts initiatiques. by Albert

Posted on 2016-12-17

The Maasai are divided into patrilineal clans and age classes. The men are in turn children, warriors then elders, each of these passages is accompanied by initiatory rites. Girls marriages are often negotiated by fathers before birth. Within a single age group, non-marital relationships are considered natural. The Maasai live in manyattas, small huts, made of dung around a wood frame. The Maasai are nomads, but they tend more and more towards sedentary living, given the pressure of governments.
