The Maasai Crisis: Five core challenges implicating the future of indigenous people in East Africa
2018, before my flight to Tanzania, I received an energetic and rather lengthy introduction via VOM website: a youthful Maasai man was hoping to meet and share some ideas. I thought to myself, what's there to lose, so I arranged a meeting at the Mount Meru hotel in Arusha. My first impression was of a very bright mind that needed a platform to share his educated Maasai perspectives and aspiring goals for his homeland.
