The Eunoto ceremony is the second public ceremony that a Maasai man will pass in his lifetime.Every man, after his circumcision at the age of about 18, is entering an age-group, and become MORAN (warrior). The morans leaves their homes and travel all over Maasai-land for seven years.Eunoto is the ceremony that  symbols the end of the moranhood. One day before the end  of the ceremony, the morans are sent to the river to smear themselves with mud. In the very last day, each  mother is shaving her son head, than loading her staff on the donkey, and start the travel back to her village.
