Bajau living on boats in the Semporna area, Malaysia.
Currently, in the Malaysian state of Sabah, Bajau are stated to be the second largest ethnic group. However, exact figures of their population are unknown. More and more of them are moving to live on land voluntarily or forcibly.
!Most of the Bajau don’t have any documents, they don’t know their age nor where they were born. A new-married couple stays with their parents or gets a new boat for themselves and starts independent life. Then often relationship with family members don’t last, as the boats miss each other in the vast waters.
