Selected Research on Orang Asli Communities features recent studies on indigenous communities in Peninsular Malaysia. It provides both an overall overview and more focused discipline-based views on Orang Asli groups like Bateq, Jakun, Kensiu, Semai, Semaq Beri and Temiar.
This edited book brings together chapters that provide insights into important issues that impact the Orang Asli’s way of life. These include:
• advocacy and customary land issues
• dissemination of information during the COVID-19 pandemic
• language and education
• indigenous knowledge of culture and heritage
• sustainable livelihood in the face of development
Written by scholars from the broad field of Arts, Social Sciences, and Humanities, this book is a useful resource not only for policy makers, researchers, and students but for anyone interested in the various facets of Orang Asli communities.
