This project explores the historical and contemporary cultural, political, and economic dynamics of the indigenous rights movement in Africa through a case-study of Maasai in Tanzania. How and why Maasai have become "indigenous"? What have been the achievements and costs of allying themselves with the transnational indigenous rights movement for their ongoing struggles for recognition, rights and resources? What are the assumptions, objectives, ideas, practices and experiences of different actors involved or affected by the movement, including its leaders, members, American and European activists, UN representatives, donors, other indigenous groups, and unaffiliated community members?
