Maasai Agreement Of 1904 And 1911

Then, in 1904, the government at the insistence of some European settlers reached an agreement with the Maasai in the Rift Valley for these Maasai to move to a special northern reserve on the Laikipia Plateau. Other members of the tribe live on a reserve to the south between the Tanganjika border and the Ngong Hills. European settlers could then take over the territory of the Naivasha Rift Valley in Solai for agriculture. In 1912, however, the government changed its policy and convinced some Maasai leaders to seize Laikipia in a heavily expanded southern section with the Loita Plains. The Land of Acquisition Act of India (1894) was extended to Kenya and was used to water the entire country, located less than a mile from both sides of the Uganda Railway, for the construction of the railway and for the compulsory acquisition of land for government buildings in 1897 by the Protectorate Commissioner (Okoth-Ogendo, 1991). In 1902, the entire country of the protectorate was declared to the Crown, whether or not the country was reserved for Aboriginal people, which in fact made all Africans Crown tenants (Okoth-Ogendo, 1991). According to Okoth-Ogendo (1991), the Crown was defined as the entire public land of the East African protectorate which, for the time being, was under The control of Her Majesty under agreements or contracts and all countries that had been or could have been acquired by Her Majesty under the Land of Acquisition Act of 1894. The overall objective of Maasai`s campaign initiative is to address the historical injustices and injustices caused by the British colonial government`s appropriation of Maasai`s ancestral lands following the Maasai Accords of 1904 and 1911 and the inability of successive governments in independent Kenya to address the injustices and injustices mentioned. With regard to Mr Forrester`s environmental issues, I respond in a new article to similar criticisms. I will not repeat the arguments here; The article is freely searchable online. Can I refer readers to a more complete answer that defies the ahistoricity of this type of criticism in Swieflum and discusses the role of perception, social memory and memory constructions in understanding history? In short, the environment of Laikipia today (or whenever he grew up) cannot be compared to that of the late 19th or early 20th century; We can`t do that in the western district of Narok either. Over time, these regions have undergone enormous technological and climate change that has changed the way different communities are able to use their resources. Some diseases are rampant today, which were relatively unknown in the past; I describe in detail the etiology of East Coast Fever (ECF) – most likely introduced and spread by laikipia settlers (2006: 122).

Before limiting themselves to reserves, Africans also addressed the challenges of disease by moving away from certain areas.
