Nomadic and seminomadic pastoralists around the world continue to maintain rich, deeply held traditions even as they struggle for their rights and adapt to contemporary realities. From acclaimed Montreal-based Felix & Paul Studios, the Nomads virtual-reality series transports you across the Earth into an intimate look at several nomadic cultures. Experience the way of life of yak herders on the Mongolian steppes, Maasai in Kenya, and Bajau sea nomads living off the coast of Borneo as they move from place to place across their ancestral territories.
