    Don’t forget that for every day you spend at Campi ya Kanzi, a $ conservation fee is set aside to assist the Maasai community and to protect their wildlife. A bit of Maasai tribe history In common with the wildlife with which they co-exist, the Maasai need a lot of land. One of the main characters in my upcoming book is Kwai Libazo, a half-Maasai, half-Kikuyu tribal policeman. I gave him that identity to keep in a no-man’s land in terms of his allegiance. In solving the mystery of Strange Gods, his background gives him an advantage.

      Indigenous Maasai holding positions in government have been co-opted to strategically safeguard and promote the interests of the state and dominant society. In the last eighteen years, an estimated one million acres of land have been appropriated through corrupt practices without the knowledge of the Maasai people. While movies, books, and articles about the Maasai have been released by outsiders, the Maasai have had little opportunity to tell their own story to the world. To build and preserve authentic versions of the Maasai culture, MCV’s MCCP is led by 15 traditional Kenyan and Tanzanian Maasai chiefs and is supported by Maasai staff and volunteers.
