The homeland of the Masia today lies mostly in Tanzania, but also extends into southern Kenya.

  Californians have been coping with drought for a few years now. For the Masai people of eastern Africa, water shortages have been a fact of life for generations, one of several needs that a local non-profit is helping with.

  The Masai are a long-standing tribal presence in their region, a people that, Alias Morindot explains, have managed to preserve most of their traditional way of life into the 21st century.

From that perspective, he sees pronounced contrasts with the culture of contemporary California.
