The Urban Maasai of Dar es Salaam: Reconciling Pastoralist Ancestry and Modernizing Identities

Hometown: Reston, Virginia

Department: Africana Studies

Advisor: Chinua Thelwell

 

The Maasai population of Tanzania has historically occupied the Northern Ngorongoro region of the country, practicing semi-nomadic and pastoralist lifestyles. However, in recent years influxes of young Maasai have migrated to city centers seeking economic advancement or escaping government seizure of communal lands. My research will be some of the first to investigate not only motivations for migration, but also how the urban Maasai reconcile their pastoralist ancestry with urban identities.
