Creation Date

1971

Description

In the early 1970s, Malay farmers sometimes commissioned Batek Teh living at Post Lebir to make thatch for their houses. This trade soon dried up as corrugated metal roofing became readily available. Here some Batek Teh have set up a camp near an abundant supply of thatch palms (Calamus castaneus) and are making rolls of thatch to trade.
