A look at the Bajau sea nomads who live off fishing in the seas and oceans of South East Asia. A largely stateless people, they have lived traditionally in longboat dwellings or more commonly today in stilt houses. As lifestyles change to adapt to the commercial fishing industries and territory shifts, the way of life of the Bajau Laut is subject to increasing pressure.
