In the Maasai communities of rural Kenya, boys become warriors through ceremonial rites of passage, but girls are largely excluded. In 2019, a group of 12 women — some escaping poverty and abuse — try out to become East Africa’s first all-female, anti-poaching unit. As they undergo incredible transformations through ritual, the recruits endure tough physical training; however, it’s learning to tap into their trauma and channel their anger to cultivate courage that proves to be the most transformative. After a six-month journey of self-discovery, the women create their own ceremonial rite of passage to become guardians of Kenya’s wildlife.
