Maasai Morans are gearing up for 3rd Maasai Olympics based on their traditional warrior skills
25th June, 2016
The Maasai, for many centuries, hunted and killed lions as a traditional rite of passage to manhood. Lion killing was to express bravery, identify leaders and impress women. And the more the warriors, the less the lions became.
But the Maasai community working with the big life foundation created a historic alternative to lion killing: the Maasai Olympics.
As national athletes prepare for the Rio Olympics, Maasai Moran’s are gearing up for the finals of the third Maasai Olympics. Take a look.
