FOOTNOTE:

The Maasai (or Masai), an east African nomadic people, have been known as warriors who possess great strength and a strong sense of independence. They live in the countries of Kenya and Tanzania, in an area known as Maasailand. The region contains great natural wonders of the world, including Mt. Kilimanjaro. The Maasai date to 500 BCE (Before Common Era), when they lived along the Nile River in southern Sudan. Over time they migrated southward to the area now known as Tanzania. Through the mid-1800s the Maasai were among the most powerful groups in Africa, ruling over 10 million acres of land. Today the Maasai number approximately 250,000.
