Maasai Silhouette

Maasai boys are responsible for herding livestock from boyhood to adulthood, young Maasai boys begin to learn the responsibilities of being a man (herder) and a warrior.

Through rituals and ceremonies, including circumcision, Maasai boys are guided and mentored by their fathers and other elders on how to become a warrior.

Although they still live their carefree lives as boys – raiding cattle, chasing young girls, and game hunting –
a Maasai boy must also learn all of the cultural practices, customary laws and responsibilities he’ll require as an elder.
