Bajau people of Malaysia are refugees banned from living on land.
- Canadian photographer Mark Lehn captured these striking images of theBajau Laut off the coast of Sabah, Borneo
- Originally from the Sulu Archipelago in the Philippines, the nomadic tribe are stateless and depend on the water
- Dwindling trade and food sources means an increasing number of them are moving to the mainland for work
Despite their tough lives, the Bajau children of Malaysia still find time to play.
For some of us, owning a home by the sea is something of a dream. But for the Bajau Laut, stateless sea gypsies who live off the coast of Borneo, life on the water is just a part of who they are. Can some big organization take a look at this and give them proper life.
