Maasai Bead Bangles- Set Of Three

The Maasai are a tribe that most people immediately associate with Africa. They are the tall warriors who wear unmistakable red shukas around their shoulders, and the radiant, almost sun-like beaded ornaments around their necks, on their heads, and even adorning their weaponry.

These proud people have survived many encroachments into their land, relocations, and the attempts to make them abandon their traditional ways. Although their cultural suffering was great, no one could ever make the Maasai abandon their identity.

Today, the Maasai population is approximately 500,000. They inhabit East Africa: southern Kenya and northern Tanzania, along the Great Rift Valley.
