This week on #tribetuesday we will feature the Maasai.
The Maasai are an indigenous ethnic group in Africa of semi-nomadic people settled in Kenya and Nothern Tanzania. Due to their distinct traditions, customs and dress and their residence near the many national game parks of East Africa, they are among the foremost African ethnic groups and are known internationally.
Maasai speak the Maa language, a member of the Nilotic language family that is related to the Dinka, Kalenjin and Nuer languages. Except for some elders living in rural areas, most Maasai people speak the official languages of Kenya and Tanzania, Swahili and English.
