The oral land laws of the Dayak and Orang Ulu indigenous communities have been compiled into a book to make sure their rich ancestral traditions and way of life will not become forgotten.  The pionerring effort was carried out by the Society for Rights of Indigenous People of Sarawak (Scrips), a community-based organistion.  It is a noble move by the society which has more than 30 ethnic and sub-ethnic groups.  The book, entitled “Our communal territories, our communal rights”, is in Bahasa Malaysia and compiled by Scrips secretary Michael Jok and community chief ex-Temenggong Pahang Deng.  For full story click here.
