Masai and Bedouins

"Once these people were royalty, perhaps the most independent and proud of Africa's pastoral peoples. Now they were hawkers and beggars, dependent on the whims of the tourists who come here, in part, to see them and their lives." (Thanks Anna)

Masai, Bedouins, nomadic people around the world suffer the same fate. The chains and fences of the nation states do not become them.
