Three Course Dinner: $100

Event Description

Chief Salaton became a skilled warrior who survived among wild animals in the harsh and challenging African Savanna. He spent seven years in the African bush, from the age of 14, surviving with little more than a blanket and a spear. He is now a leader on social and economic issues for his tribe. During his visit, Salaton will engage groups and individuals in presentations and conversations about his traditional Maasai life from childhood, through warriorship, into his present role as a visionary leader bridging world cultures.

Over the years, Dr. Andrew Lustig, his host for these events, has worked with this tribal community to provide volunteer healthcare and is inspired by their culture, traditions and generous spirit. He joins efforts with Salaton to preserve a balance between the traditional ways of life and the encroaching modern world through education and quality healthcare.
