Maasai Warrior Dance

The Maasai warriors arranged themselves outside between the playground and the soccer pitch to perform a traditional dance. They sing, and bounce, and jump, and it's awesome. See for yourself in the video below. When they approach you, they will dip their shoulder to you, and you in turn are supposed to bump them with your shoulder as well. Some of the girls from the school joined us outside and helped to guide us in what we should and should not do. One of the students danced me out to the warriors to initate a shoulder bump with them. The best part was that when some of the young gentleman popped on over, they would drop some English on us. Some examples include: "What is your name?"; "Where are you from?"; "So white."
Check out the cell phone video being taken of us in this video:
