In Maasailand, "Enkai", the word for "God" is also used to mean "rain".
This documentary portrays members of a Kenyan pastoralist community on the outskirts of the Maasai Mara National Reserve as they creatively respond to challenges posed by climate change, land privatization and environmental degradation. In increasingly uncertain times, they ask themselves questions on the future of raising livestock in the Kenyan rangelands and what it means to be a pastoralist.

The project is funded by the Livestock and Climate Change Collaborative Research Support Programme (CRSP) at Colorado State University, with support from the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS).
