  1. The Maasai do not believe as an after life. Most dead bodies are simply thrown to the wild forests for scavengers. Burials are believed to harm the soil and is reserved only for some chiefs. In fact, in some occasions, the dead would be smeared with fat so as to easily attract wild animals to eat the bodies.
