Datoga Tribe

The Datoga Tribe are expert blacksmiths.  They are skilled craftsmen who use scrap metal to forge pieces of jewelry, along with weapons and arrow heads, used locally by other tribes.  They also keep goats, sheeps, cattle, donkeys, and a few chickens.  They were formerly nomadic, but now many of their groups farm plots of maize, beans, millet, and similar crops.  

You will be able to try forging the metal yourself, using their techniques.
