The Bajau tribe

The Bajau usually live a seaborne lifestyle, and use small wooden sailing vessels.The Sama-Bajau are traditionally from the many islands of the Sulu Archipelago in the Philippines , as well as parts of the coastal areas of Mindanao and northern Borneo. In the last 50 years, many of the Filipino Sama-Bajau have migrated to neighbouring Malaysia and the northern islands of the Philippines, due to the conflict in Mindanao.
