The Big Spelling Debate, Maasai or

Ah, yes, you will see the spelling of the pastoral people both Maasai and Masaai in our writings and on our products! As I have stayed firm to quality control over the years I have remained flexible to social context issues. Back in 2011, when I started this journey, my contact in TZ confirmed the first spelling but as I interviewed the choir over the last year, Maasai prevailed! So to ward off any further confusion or questions…please spell it how you want and know it is OKAY…we will now use Maasai, or at least until it changes again!
