The Little Oreteti

This smaller book of 56 pages, beautifully illustrated and drawn from the big ORETETI document describes the 17 most important plants for the Maasai, or the ones they mostly use in their daily life, to feed, cure themselves and their animals, or for their rituals. It is meant for the Maasai youth and school children as a tool of transmission of an oral knowledge, which nowadays disappears so quickly that it might be soon forgotten. But it is also meant for all the people who would like to have a glimpse into the richness of the Maasai flora and culture.

Here under, a photograph of the book as it now looks – with the Club’s ex-libris, and rubberstamp on the title-page.
