Description

ABSTRACT — While classical monographs of Skeat, Evans & Schebesta all give numerous stories of the Orang Asli, the stories that show specific references to geographical places, identifiable on the maps, are rare. I propose to present one legend that appear to include a few identifiable spots in Kedah and its environs and argue that the knowledge of places that the Orang Asli possess may, indeed should be considered at valuable heritage of the peoples of Malaysia.
