Olosho is a powerful new video exploring the ongoing land-rights struggle in Loliondo, Tanzania.
It was created by six members of the Maasai community, from three distinct clans, who have been battling over twenty years to protect their territory. The community’s land – sandwiched between the Serengeti, Maasai Mara and Ngorongoro – is under threat from foreign companies and the Tanzanian government who are intent on evicting the Maasai and partitioning the land for luxury hunting of the world’s most valuable wildlife.
This is their story in their own words.
