Masai Matriarch

Masi Matriarch

Masi Matriarch

This dignified lady is the matriarch of a Masi village in central Tanzania.We had just finished a lunch of goat stew and rice with the village when this elegant, poised lady sat on a log under a tree for a brief visit. She thinks she is probably about ninety, and although nearly blind and a little hard of hearing she chatted patiently with us through an interrupter.

Be sure to see my gallery, African Eyes, showing additional images of  some of the people of the Southern Highlands of Tanzania.
