In Response To: Re: What do the Masai know? (Joanna)
Found this on the web:
The Pastoral Maasai eschew hunting, fishing, and farming, adhering zealously to a purely pastoral diet. They attempt to live solely off the milk, meat, and blood of their livestock. They have 14 head of capital per capita, making them one of the wealthiest cattle-owning peoples in Africa. A typical family (8-10 people) owns 125-140 head of cattle, of which 57-60% are adult milch cows on which the family depends for daily subsistence. Pastoral Maasai also keep large flocks of sheep and goats, kept solely for meat consumption. A typical family owns 150-200 sheep and goats, and at least five or six donkeys, which are used as pack animals.
Plus, of course, I spelled Maasai wrong. SORRY!!!!!!
