Maasai Warrior

A Maasai warrior guards the land. The Maasai are a semi-nomadic people who live under a communal land management system. The movement of livestock is based on seasonal rotation allowing the tribes to utilise resources in a sustainable manner. Each section (tribe) manages its own territory. Under normal conditions, reserve pastures are fallowed and guarded by the warriors. However, if the dry season becomes especially harsh, sections boundaries are ignored and people graze animals throughout the land until the rainy season arrives. According to Maasai traditional land agreement, no one should be denied access to natural resources such as water and land.
