The Maasai are monotheistic, believing in a single deity, Enkai. The Maasai god has a dual nature: Enkai Narok (black god) who is charitable and Enkai Nanyokie (red god) who is unforgiving.

Maasai men The belief in a single deity has seen most Maasai adopting Christianity. Today, about 85 per cent of the Kajiado residents are Christians with the remaining 5 per cent worshipping other religions such as Islam and Hindu.

Traditionally, Maasai women were tasked with building homes (manyattas), collecting firewood, preparing food, among other domestic chores, while men were left free to be warriors - defending their territories and cattle. The role of the children was to look after the livestock. However, this tradition has diminished over time and many Maasai children are now allowed to go to school.

The Maasai are renowned for their colourful dressing that consists of red shuka (light blankets), wrapped around the body and multi-coloured beaded jewellery worn around the necks and arms. The Maasai men are traditionally polygamous, while women are allowed to have intimate relationships with their husbands' age-mates so as to bring forth warriors.
