• Slums, Kilimanjaro, and a broken model of development. — The western model of #development has been based on the false promise that those who follow it will achieve the same quality of life enjoyed by a few western nations. — One of the key aims of the development paradigm still enforced today upon #indigenous & #tribal peoples is to teach them to have contempt for their ancestral way of life, including their own language. — RESULT: (1) cultural loss: which leads to a chaotic condition of disintegration and disenfranchisement from which the most extreme ideologies have emerged – Maoists in Nepal, Khymer Rouge of Pol Pot, ISIS, the list goes on (…); (2) education: often offered in exchange for religious indoctrination; (3) contempt for ancient knowledge: results in the loss of precious self-reliance skills such as the ability to hunt, make fire, build shelter, and find water. Basically, like us, they become reliant on ‘the system’ to survive. — What you see in this picture is the result of those who after undergoing such self-destructive process, and unable to find work, incapable of going home, drifted to the nearest slums to scratch a living from the edges of a cash-based economy. — I’ll finish this post by borrowing Wade Davis’ brilliant words on this issue: “The fate of the vast majority of those who sever their ties with their traditions will not be to attain the prosperity of the West, but to join the legions of urban poor, trapped in squalor, struggling to survive. As cultures wither away, individuals remain, often shadows of their former selves, caught in time, unable to return to the past, yet denied any real possibility of securing a place in the world whose values they seek to emulate and whose wealth they long to acquire.” ••••••••••••••••• #kilimanjaro #indigenouspeoples #kenya #landrights #storytelling #indigenousrights #humanrightswatch #activism #anthropology #natgeo #discoverearth

MAASAI (2/2)  As pastoralists never having had to hunt wild animals, the Maasai have always been an extravagantly coloured and beautifully adorned tribe. The tribesmen would dye their clothing red to distinguish from other tribes who usually wore white, and so that if a man was injured in battle the blood would not show on his clothes and the enemy would not realize his weakened state. Today blue, black and checkered cloths are also worn. Beadwork done by the women has a long history among the Maasai who define their identity and position in society through body ornaments and painting. Tribesmen of all ages including tiny babies will wear jewellery.  @asiliaafrica 📷Pinterest
