They chose to live freely, they didn’t condemn themselves to houses made of brick and stones. Instead, they have the company of nature; they dance with the wind, drink from rivers. Their bed is meadows and their ceiling sky. They know how to tame nature, they are Qashqai Nomads.

Today, October 7, is the national day of Nomads in Iran.
