Pieces of a Whole
Sometimes referred to as “sea nomads,” the Bajau Laut tribe lives in several different areas around Southeast Asia. Although they have settlements in other places, the Bajau Laut has key settlements in the Philippines, Brunei, and Malaysia. Their major settlements, or “hubs,” are placed in areas with habitable shores and fruitful vegetation nearby. There are intermittent settlements in between the hub settlements to provide places for traveling tribe members to eat and rest.
