Nomadic  (NOMADIC)

A population may be settled1, sedentary1, or nomadic2, i. e., migrating back and forth within a given area. Nomads who are in the process of becoming settled are called semi-nomadic3. Occasionally primitive peoples may have a territory allocated exclusively to themselves called a native reserve4 or reservation4.
