Abstract:During the colonial period, the Maasai were conspicuous for their unwillingness to become involved in, or to co-operate with, colonial rule in Kenya. Between 1895 and 1904, however the Maasai and the British had entered an informal alliance to further their mutual interests. The article examines the nature of Maasai responses during this period and sets them in their social context. Map, notes, table, summary.
