Abstract

This article examines livelihood shifts and gender performances through space and the negotiation for labor among East Africa's pastoralists. The research demonstrates that the women and men interviewed are deeply aware of how space conveys particular meanings during negotiations. In all instances, the effectiveness of each man and woman's performance cannot be understood outside of this spatial context. As pastoral livelihoods shift, the boundaries of what it means to be a Masai are pushed. In this context, the disciplinary power of culture and the meanings of gender become destabilized, allowing for a renegotiation and forging of gender norms and subjectivities
