Kenya has been described as "the cradle of humanity". The country"™s indigenous population represents more diversity than any other African country; currently there are more than 40 different ethnic groups in Kenya.
The Maasai tribe could be the most known Kenyan tribe outside Kenya. The Maasai worship cattle, as it is their main source of economic survival. These herdsmen's diet consists of cow's blood and milk, which they mix together and drink.
A very proud and beautiful people, the Maasai enjoy adorning themselves with beads and dressing in red colorful cloth. The women do all the day to day work, including building houses, while the men tend the cattle and make tribal decisions. The men are also known for their dancing, where they jump in the air at a great height.
Despite the government driving the Maasai to join the modern world, they have managed to hang on to their nomadic traditions.
