I fell over an interesting documentary (see video links bottom).
people (also known as Sea Gipsies
) live in the middle of the sea, rarely go on land, have no nationality, no fixed abode, no money
(or called Sama-Bajau
) people fled the Philippines
, only to find themselves banned from stepping ashore.
Bajaus become landsick
when visiting shores for buying
for the engines or maintenance
Being born in a water
world.... born on a boat, and living all life on house boats they have adapting perfectly for staying, in and under the water
video credit: BBC and the "Human Planet" series
The life of the Bajaus is still and continuously threatened.... e.g. by dynamite fishing
destroying the naturally fish
resources and piracy
as shown in following documentary.
