Enjoy a talk by Lindsey, our intern, on the Maasai people of East Africa.  For hundreds of years, the Maasai people have had a complex relationship with lions. However, with lion populations drastically dwindling, the Maasai have adapted from their roles as hunters to protectors of the African lions.

 

Our second hour will be a cooking demonstration of Yu Lin Chi (Chinese Fried Chicken with special sauce) and, of course, eating the finished product!
