Cartwright, Justin Masai Dreaming, 1993
Page Number: Introduction
The vowel sound ‘aai’ pronounced ‘eye’ is very popular with the Masai. Masai has a long ‘a’. Researchers and academics now spell Masai ‘Maasai’. Long a’s are more authentic and less touristy. There is no correct spelling of a Masai word, because Masai is not a written Language.
