Portrait of a Young Maasai (or Masai) Woman, East Africa by 

Portrait of a Young Maasai (or Masai) woman, East Africa. The Maasai live across Kenya and Tanzania. In many ways the Masai have managed to retain their traditional culture, though children are now expected to go to government schools, & pressures have been put on their society by land laws & National Parks rules, however they maily dress in traditional clothing & jewellery & practice a rural lifestyle centred on cattle.The men and boys raise the cattle, while women do everything else.
