Malaysia and the Original People:
A Case Study of the Impact of Development on Indigenous Peoples
Robert Knox Dentan, Kirk Endicott,
Alberto G. Gomes and MB Hooker
Malaysia's Orang Asli, indigenous people, are swept to the margins of both Malaysia's and the rest of the world's public consciousness. For example in a Malayisian poll mentioned in this book 88% of respondents incorrectly thought that the orang asli lived in reserves and even 14% thought they lived in trees. Four ehtnographers of international standing, Robert Knox Dentan, Kirk Endicott, Alberto G. Gomes and MB Hooker have teamed up to write this book to redress our lack of information and so raise our awareness of the first Malaysians. This 175 page book includes chapters on Orang Asli Before Development; Government Intervention; Development, Destruction and Encroachment; Regroupment and Islamization and The Future of the Orang Asli.
