If a hamer man has no more room on his body to tally his “kills” through scarification, then one of his wives can signal this information on her skin; each line of scars is said to represent one enemy killed.
The maza (meaning “accomplished one”) are , a group of men who have completed the bull-jump but have not married because their relatives have not yet found them a bride or the money with which to pay her dowry. most initiates remain a maz for a few months; a few for up to two years, and very occasionally an individual decides to remain a maz for the rest of his life. they travel from one bull jump ceremony to another and receive village gifts of food and drink for their services. when there are no forthcoming bullahs ( ceremony) for a period of time they live off the land by collecting honey and drinking cow’s milk and blood.
