The Laibon Maasai chief is a very powerful man. 8 wives, 70+ children and more head of cattle than can be counted. For the Maasai, their wealth is measured in cattle and children.

This is one of the chief's sons - he was our escort and guide while were in the village, and was often seen using his cell phone. Go figure!
