Masai Jump Dance
Kenya. Masai Jump Dance.
Amongst the many traditions kept by Masai tribes the best known is the warrior jumping dance, where young Masai morani (morani stands for young warrior) leap into the air from a standing position, in order to demonstrate their strength and agility. Until recent times, in order to earn the right to have a wife, a Masai moran was required to have killed a lion. Officially this practice is deprecated although there are some evidences that it continues in some remote regions.
