As an ethnic group of semi-nomadic people, Kenya's Massai Warriors use their long-preserved dance culture to make decisions, celebrate manhood and address other social issues.

This traditional dance, known as 'Adumu,' is often called the "jumping dance." It is a highly recognizable ritual in Maasai life.

This is how the Maasai earn their warrior status, find mates, or select their future chief.

The highest jumper often reaps the most benefits.
