The Maasai society is very rich in culture, all along generations they have passed their beliefs and rituals.  Still nowadays they perform their ceremonies the same way as they did hundreds of years ago.  Although the Maasai are content with their society, their population is growing at an extremely low rate because of their “blindness” to the outside world.  They are not aware of any technological or medical advances and day after day their land is being destroyed, making it harder for them to raise their cattle, which is their main source of living.  Hopefully the government will help the Maasai people to keep their land and their traditions, if not they will need to get an education and start preparing to be able to face the modern world.
