The nomadic people of Iran may very well disappear. One hundred years ago, there were five million, but now there are only 1.5 million. They have had to contend with government policies imposing a sedentary lifestyle, the forces of modernization and the harsh climate. They have resisted, despite the harsh living conditions and an uncertain future. Many have ended up living in the hope of the urban life. Others have been consumed by the city and surrendered. Nomades got lost.
