Thought to have migrated to Kenya from the lower valleys of the Nile, the Maasai are distinguished by their complex character, impeccable manners, impressive presence and almost mystical love for their cattle.
Also interesting is the fact that one doesn't have to look too far to see the warrior traits in them. Most adorn the wooden walking stick called eng'udi, the wooden club called rungu, the short sword called olalem, the long spear called eng'erempe and the slim stick called echipishipi - each with distinct use and could come in handy for self defense in a heartbeat. Add to it the red robe and the warrior is good to go.
‘Shujaa’ in Swahili translates to ‘Warrior’
