The Maasai from Tanzania are one of Africa’s oldest tribes. 40,000 Maasai are still at risk of being evicted from their ancestral homelands so that wealthy tourists can use them for elite hunting safaris. This is a video message from the Maasai to request global solidarity for their struggle to protect their territory and culture.
