Compose a 1250 words assignment on rites of passage. Needs to be plagiarism free! The Maasai culture upholds ceremonies like Enkipaata&nbsp.(senior boy ceremony),&nbsp.Emuratta&nbsp.(circumcision),&nbsp.Enkiama&nbsp.(marriage),&nbsp.Eunoto&nbsp.(warrior-shaving ceremony),&nbsp.Eokoto e-kule&nbsp.(milk-drinking ceremony),&nbsp.Enkang oo-nkiri&nbsp.(meat-eating ceremony),&nbsp.Orngesherr&nbsp.(junior elder ceremony), etc for initiation or transition from childhood to adulthood (Maasai Association, 2014). Ceremonies for the boys and girls minors include Eudoto and Ilkipirat which involve piercing of ear and leg fire marks respectively. These are done before circumcision. These ceremonies express the Maasai culture as well as their free will. The life of a man in the Maasai community is marked by a well-ordered systematic progression through rituals duties and ceremonies (Wendy, 2003). The Enkipaata ceremony takes place with the entrustment of boys aged between 14 and 16 years to travel around their region and declare the development of a new-age set. Around 30-40 houses are established for the imitation of boys who are united and prepared for their transition. Circumcision is an important initiation amongst all the rites of passages and takes place after puberty. Circumcision marks the point of becoming a full member of a community (Kimokoti and Kibera, 2008, p.78). In the twenty-first century, young Maasai women do not undergo this process. However young boys undergo this process to become warriors. They need to show the indications of a grown man by carrying a heavy spear. A boy is supposed to herd livestock for seven days consecutively and on the eighth-day circumcision, the process occurs. A male circumcision is a public event amongst Maasai. Circumcision is painful and the healing period takes around 3-4 months. Following this process, the boys kill birds for real. The young man to be initiated wears a black robe with unkempt hair, blue beads, and a headband of reeds. After being healed the boys become a new individual and gain recognition as warriors (Galaty, 1998).&nbsp.
