Moken Sea Gypsy communities

The Moken are an ethnic group, sometimes referred to as Sea Gypsies, who live in south Thailand. Some live on mainland while others are on islands dotted around the coast. Their unique cultural identity has come under threat in recent years as they try to strike a balance between integration into the modern world and preserving their culture.
