The objective of this study is to portray the indigenous lives of Bedouins and to highlight how capitalism has taken over not only their lives but their identities too. Masked superstructures with rising modernization and other power politics are ones that hold the strings to their lives.  The memoir “Out of the desert” by Ali Al-Naimi (former Saudi oil minister), stands as a foundation on the insights this paper has to provide. The thrive, the drive, the struggles and lives of Indigenous tribes such as Bedouins are outlined in the paper. The mechanism behind the death of their cultural identities and the acceptance of a neo-colonial identity is something that this paper encapsulates too; like sand in an hourglass, the identities of these dessert dwellers drift away like sand dunes in the capitalistic desserts.
