Maasai Traditional Medicine


Laura Ash with the Maasai.

In December of 2011, Laura Ash moved to Tanzania with her family in hopes to light the country with solar energy. A few months later the small family went on a safari and ended up at Kirurumu lodge above Lake Manyara in the Great Rift Valley. There, Laura went on a plant walk with a Maasai herbalist. After that walk, and a plethora of questions, the herbalist asked Laura to help him document his traditional medicine knowledge.
