I was born in Malaysia and I have become interested in the Orang Asli,(Native People of Malaysia),
as a result of Research I did for
the Native Planet organisation.
I am the Facilitator for a Project on Indigenous Knowledge Management for the Orang Asli people.
Indigenous Knowledge has been defined as :-
"the unique, traditional, local knowledge existing within and developed around the specific conditions of women and men indigenous to a particular geographic area".
The objective of the Project is to evaluate the role of ICT in creating a permanent record the local customs and traditions of the Orang Asli.
I have created a Bulletin Board for people who share my interest in the Orang Asli.
Helpful contacts include Antares, Colin Nicholas, Peter van der Helm and Rudy (an Orang Asli who maintains a Blog).
Rizuan is the Coordinator for a Semai Group at Bidor called SPNS), and he also leads a team that maintains a Web Site called Indigenous Knowledge (IK) Net
Theremainder of this Page shows the major Steps in the Project.
If you are interested in my work, I would be pleased to hear from you.
