Masai and Mursi in Washington Post Article

The Washington Post is running a story about conflicts over parkland, people, and animals, in Kenya. Environmentalists are concerned about the effects of Masai cattle on the wildlife in Kenyan parks. Further on in the story, the continued possibility of evictions of Mursi from Ethiopian parks is mentioned.

Films and readings about the Masai and the Mursi are common in first year anthropology classes. My classes are no exception and my students should be interested in this story as it updates the situations in places and with people we have discussed.
