Masai Tribe: Never lets the tradition die.

3rd-5th graders learned about the Masai tribe while creating these colorful collages.
The Masai people of Kenya and northern Tanzania adorn themselves with "Shukas", the sheets wrapped around their bodies. These are often in bold colors with stripes and plaid. Since we are studying color, we put are “Shukas” in order of the rainbow (ROYGBP).
We used different types of lines to make the stripes and the decorative cloth. We added necklaces and earring on our Masai people, since they are very popular in their culture.
Some of our people might be jumping because Masai warriors are well known for their competitive jumping. Another fun fact about the Masai tribe is that they drink cow blood during celebrations and as nourishment for the sick.
