Malaysian community Malay Today, the Malays, Malaysias largest ethnic group, make up more than 50% of the population. In Malaysia, the term Malay refers to a person who practices Islam and Malay traditions, speaks the Malay language and whose ancestors are Malays. Their conversion to Islam from Hinduism and Theravada Buddhism began in the 1400s, largely influenced by the decision of the royal court of Melaka. The Malays are known for their gentle mannerisms and rich arts heritage
CHINESE The second largest ethnic group, the Malaysian Chinese form about 25% of the population. Mostly descendants of Chinese immigrants during the 19th century, the Chinese are known for their diligence and keen business sense. The three sub-groups who speak a different dialect of the Chinese language are the Hokkien who live predominantly on the northern island of Penang; the Cantonese who live predominantly in the capital city Kuala Lumpur; and the Mandarin- speaking group who live predominantly in the southern state of Johor
INDIAN The smallest of three main ethnic groups, the Malaysian Indians form about 10% of the population. Most are descendants of Tamil- speaking South Indian immigrants who came to the country during the British colonial rule. Lured by the prospect of breaking out of the Indian caste system, they came to Malaysia to build a better life. Predominantly Hindus, they brought with them their colourful culture such as ornate temples, spicy cuisine and exquisite sarees.
INDIGENOUS ETHNIC GROUPS Orang Asli Orang Asli is a general term used for any indigenous groups that are found in Peninsular Malaysia. They are divided into three main tribal groups: Negrito, Senoi and Proto-Malay. The Negrito usually live in the north, the Senoi in the middle and the Proto-Malay in the south. Each group or sub-group has its own language and culture. Some are fishermen, some farmers and some are semi-nomadic.
sarawak Iban The largest of Sarawaks ethnic groups, the Ibans form 30% of the states population. Sometimes erroneously referred to as the Sea Dayaks because of their skill with boats, they are actually an upriver tribe from the heart of Kalimantan. In the past, they were a fearsome warrior race renowned for headhunting and piracy. Traditionally, they worship a triumvirate of gods under the authority of Singalang Burung, the bird-god of war. Although now mostly Christians, many traditional customs are still practised.
Bidayuh Peace-loving and easy-going, the gentle Bidayuh of Sarawak are famous for their hospitality and tuak or rice wine. Making their homes in Sarawaks mountainous regions, they are mostly farmers and hunters. In their past headhunting days, their prized skulls were stored in a baruk a roundhouse that rises about 1.5 metres above the ground. Originally animists, now most of them have converted to Christianity
Orang Ulu Also known as upriver tribes of Sarawak. Forming roughly 5.5% of Sarawaks population, there are over 100,000 different Orang Ulu tribes. Arguably Borneos most artistic people, their large longhouses are ornately decorated with murals and superb woodcarvings; their utensils are embellished with intricate beadwork; and aristocratic ladies cover their bodies with finely detailed tattoos.
sabah Kadazan Dusun The largest ethnic group of Sabah, the Kadazan Dusuns form about 30% of the states population. Actually consisting of two tribes; the Kadazan and the Dusun, they were grouped together as they both share the same language and culture. However, the Kadazan are mainly inhabitants of flat valley deltas, which are conducive to paddy field farming, while the Dusun traditionally lived in the hilly and mountainous regions of interior Sabah.
BajauThe second largest ethnic group in Sabah, the Bajausmake up about 15% of the states population.Historically a nomadic sea-faring people thatworshipped the Omboh Dilaut or God of the Sea, theyare sometimes referred to as the Sea Gypsies. Thosewho chose to leave their sea-faring ways becamefarmers and cattle-breeders. These land Bajaus arenicknamed Cowboys of the East in tribute to theirimpressive equestrian skills, which are publiclydisplayed in the annual Tamu Besar festival at KotaBelud.
Murut The third largest ethnic group in Sabah the Muruts make up about 3% of the states population. Traditionally inhabiting the northern inland regions of Borneo, they were the last of Sabahs ethnic groups to renounce headhunting. Now, they are mostly shifting cultivators of hill paddy and tapioca, supplementing their diet with blowpipe hunting and fishing. Like most indigenous tribes in Sabah, their traditional clothing is decorated with distinctive beadwork.
