In other news, I saw some really amazing bead work in my Africa class today as my teacher showed us some Masai crafts. I wish I was that good at beading. In other Africa news, I like how our textbook really emphasizes continuity and change. Like one example is of a group using the same ceremony for warriors that had returned from battle for people who had returned from college. So it's not saying either "well, they all decided to become westernized, go them" or "they haven't changed any since time primordial".
