Anak Temiar

In Malaysia the Orang Asli, like the Malays (who are 55% of the population), are officially known as ‘Bumiputera’ (children of the earth) or ‘natives of the country’. A subgroup of the Senoi, the Temiar are found to be mainly in Perak, Kelantan and some in Pahang.

“The Temiar do not see themselves as forest people. They see themselves as people who live in cleared spaces which happen to be surrounded by forest” (Jennings 25: 1995)
