New Immigrants

By the shore of Roxas in Palawan Philippines 70 Bajau families form a small village.They're a nomadic group of people near southern Philippines. They use to live in stilted houses over shallow waters on large sand bars. More and more of them have been forced to immigrate on land. Once on land, they're faced with many new issues, for instance, they didn't use to have none-biodegradable waste. At sea, everything is bio-degradable, on land, they start to consume packaged goods.
