Maasai warrior studies tourism at Clemson

James Nampushi moves his arms, turning his metal spear around as he shows the Daniel High School students how he battled a lion king in the plains of Kenya.

The students' eyes move, following his spear, as he tells of the battle.

"We were three warriors," Nampushi says. "And the lions, they did not know we were hunting them."

Slowly, these three men were tracking the lion across the African desert, in Nampushi's native country of Kenya. They were hunting the great beast because he'd killed some of the cows in their village. And Nampushi knew that the man who returned with the lion's prized mane would be honored as a great warrior among his people, the Maasai.

"I had to get no more scared," Nampushi says. "You get scared, you die. So my fear turned to courage."
