Sama-bajau, sea nomads - Museu Marítim Exhibitions
11/23/2023 - 05/12/2024

The Sama-bajau ethnic group lives in the Sulu Sea, between the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia, and is the only human community that lives totally adapted to the sea. The Museu Marítim de Barcelona is dedicating an exhibition to this tribe based on two complete Sam-bajau boats, made in the 19th century and brought to Barcelona in 1899, where we can enter their marine universe and learn more about this ethnic group that only sets foot on land to trade, build boats or bury their dead.
