People still live in Maasai tribe and they stick to their customs
Most of us don’t know that there still are people who live in tribes and they are reluctant to give up their customs, traditions, ways of living etc. It is really hard to imagine that in this modern age, there would be some people who are living far from technology and gadgets. There are people out there who even live in caves. Maasai Tribe is one the last standing tribes in the world.
In southern Kenya and Northern Tanzania, inhabit the Maasai tribe. They are located at African Great Lakes region and arrived via the South Sudan.
They speak Maa language but they are also familiar with the official languages of Kenya and Tanzania. These languages include Swahili and English.
The Maasai are known for their distinctive customs and traditions. Their reputation is built for fearsome warriors and cattle-rustlers.
The Tanzanian and Kenyan governments have tried to educate them to abandon their traditions but they are reluctant to do so and they stick to their own ways of life.
Maasai mythology and Christianity are the main religions in the community.
The hospitals of Maasai or nearby city hospitals remain empty of its inhabitants because of very low-level of diseases in them. In 1935 Weston A. Price reported that nearby tribe were disease-free. That is because of their simple and natural diet. A study in 1991 showed that the inhabitants consume average 1 liter of milk.
