Format

Summary
The Maasai make a living by sharing their traditional culture with tourists, but they are very much aware of the modern world and its problems. Economic downturns mean less visitors to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area where the Maasai live. Both herding and agriculture have become nearly impossible due to drought, leading to hunger, frustration, and yet more conflict with the government over land use. In this program three Maasai living in the NCA comment on issues the tribe faces today: development and climate change, family relations and marital problems, and the need to educate their children so they can be competitive in the 21st century world.
