The Maasai are one of the most popular tribes in the world. They are found in southern Kenya and Northern parts of Tanzania along the Great Rift Valley and belong to the Nilotic group of African Tribes.
The Maasai are easily distinguishable from other tribes because of their persistence in maintaining their traditions despite efforts by the Kenya/Tanzania governments and western influences to abandon them. They dress in traditional shukas (robes) and are adorned with beautiful intricate jewelry that is colorful and unique to the Maasai. Handmade Maasai beaded jewelry is increasingly becoming a fashion trend with its influences all over magazines and fashion shows. To the casual observer, the elaborate Maasai Jewelry might seem like just colorful beadwork but to them, every color has a meaning and every piece has a special significance to the wearer.
