“Smallest Warrior”


TANZANIA Through Harold’s Lens:

A small warrior.

Only 15.

I found him out on the Serengeti with five of his buddies. They were all 15-year old warriors to be and of great importance as a source of pride in the Maasai culture.

To be a Maasai is to be born into one of the world’s last great warrior cultures.

From boyhood to adulthood, young Maasai boys begin to learn the responsibilities of being a man (helder) and a warrior. The role of a warrior is to protect their animals from human and animal predators, to build kraals (Maasai homes) and to provide security to their families.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% certain.

    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers
