Maasai Adulthood

Circumcision initiation elevates an individual from childhood to adulthood. In order for the boy to be initiated he must prove himself to the community.

The boy must exhibit signs of a grown man, by carrying a heavy spear, herding large herd of livestock, etc

From boyhood to adulthood, young Maasai boys begin to learn the responsibilities of being a man (helder) and a warrior. The role of a warrior is to protect their animals from human and animal predators, to build kraals (Maasai homes) and to provide security to their families.

Through rituals and ceremonies, including circumcision, Maasai boys are guided and mentored by their fathers and other elders on how to become a warrior. Although they still live their carefree lives as boys - raiding cattle, chasing young girls, and game hunting - a Maasai boy must also learn all of the cultural practices, customary laws and responsibilities he'll require as an elder.
