The Maasai do not generally educate their children in a classroom. Several years ago, the chief of this set of Laibon villages realized that his people needed a more western education if the Maasai were to keep their lands and support their nomadic way of life.
I got to work with a small group of the children, teaching photography. They even managed to make me hand over my DSLR. In addition, we used my hat as a prop - it got passed around, posed in, played with, and prompted many images with attitude.
