The young man who took us to Marseilles Village is the son of the present leader. He is the heir. He said that after the boys of Marseilles went to school at the age of 6 to 14, they would be banished from the mountain forests to become a real man. Before they came back at the age of 20, they would kill a lion to complete the transformation from a boy to a man. To be honest, I was always frightened to enter the house where they lived. It's like being sold to a house in the mountains.
It is the most famous nomadic people in Kenya and Tanzania, with a population of nearly 1 million. They are also famous for preserving their traditional culture intact. Marseilles live under a strict tribal system and are managed by tribal chiefs and councils of elders. They believe that everything is alive, they never hunt, they never eat wild animals, including fish, or even eat meat only during celebrations. The Marseilles regarded cattle as life, believed that cattle were God's gift. They despised farming and thought that farming made the earth dirty. The Marseilles'villages are made of mud piled up in a circle surrounded by thorny shrubs. Each village can accommodate 4-8 families and their livestock.
Marseilles are very traditional, still living a primitive and simple life, polygamous (cattle for wives, no upper limit), living in huts, barren families, but still refuse to change the East African nomadic people. Very unique cultural landscape, it is worth visiting!
Marseille Village is still a village with primitive customs. Men with small braided children shave their heads barefoot. It is exotic.
This is the place where I can see another world. It's worth coming.
The impression on this side is very good, I think I will come here for the second time, like the feeling, recommended to you.
A very worthwhile place to go, come here will feel very relaxed, the night market is very comfortable, forget tiredness.
