EARTH A New Wild | Maasai and Their Cows | PBS

Premieres Wednesdays February 4-25, 2015 on PBS

Traditional Maasai lifestyle centres around their cattle which constitute their primary source of food. They don’t kill the cattle but just bleed them to drink their blood and drink their milk. The measure of a man’s wealth is in terms of cattle and children. A herd of 50 cattle is respectable, and the more children the better.
