AFRICÀN CULTURE CLÀSS- Masaai people in Kenya 🇰🇪

A way to Bless a child Massai tribe in Kenya spittinģ at someone is not only uncultured and disgràceful but also a very offen.sive act.


Surprisingly, To most people around the world, this is not the case with the Maasai. The Maasai are a nomadic group of people resident in Kenya and northern Tanzania in Eastern Africa. Though they are only about 1 % of the population, they are known to be one of East Africa’s most widely known tourist attractions.


When a child is born, people who visit the family have to spìt on the nèwborn baby to wish good luck and long life to the child. The belief is that, if they praise a baby, it will be cu.rsed and may not survive for long, so they say bad things about the child while spitting on it. Meaning if a child is born, all visitors from the Maasai tribe to the child’s parents including family and friends must spit on the newborn just as the parents by way of blessing them with good luck and longevity.


Maasai people in Kenyan and Tanzanian 🇹🇿 consider spitting as a sign of reverence and blessing, and they have incorporated it into their greeting culture. They spit into their palms before a handshake. The Maasai have a distinctive fashion style. They are often dressed in red sheets, also known as shuka.

This is wrapped around their bodies with lots of beads and jewelry around their arms and neck.
