Maasai Portraits 15

Images from the Maasai eunoto ceremony held during the last week of 2012 near Lolgorien, Kenya.

The eunoto is a coming of age ceremony marking the transition from the 'warrior' age group to 'junior elder' status.

The ceremony is held approximately every seven years, and is in decline due to increasing Christianization and westernization of the Maasai.

Look for our forthcoming documentary on the subject created under the banner of Art4Aid, a nonprofit organization supporting educational infrastructure in the developing world. Visit Art4Aid.org.
