They have a proud warrior tradition and choose to keep the same way of life since the 19th century. They are herdsmen and value cattle. They value their children. But their culture is slowly fading away. They are losing their land and livestock due to drought and deadly diseases. Because they have been exploited by foreigners for decades, the Maasai do not trust outsiders.
