Orang Asli Village Visit
Friday, 06 October 2006

Due to development as well as the opening of new roads in the highlands, some of the Semai elders have decided to move further into the forest in order to continue their 'shifting cultivation' practices, while those who remain behind are moved into government sponsored settlements.

Thus, we are currently not doing the tours any longer as we are reluctant to encroach into the livelihoods of the Semai tribe.

………………………………………………………………………........................................................................................

An insight to the Orange Asli’s lifestyle and culture! This programme is for those who are interested to know more about the “Semai” tribe, who practices “shifting cultivation”.
