Indigenous rights: Morni’s story

“Hutan adalah nafas Orang Asli, tanah adalah nadi kehidupan Orang Asli.”

“The forest is the breath of Orang Asli, the land is the heart of Orang Asli.”

Thank you, Morni, for inspiring us.

Good reflection coming from you a white European to an Malaysian audience. i will just add the religious dimension to it. We should stress that we are all human beigne regardless of colour, ethicity, religion and fight against ethnic nationalism and ethnic patriotism and rather champion global citizenship.

Morni’s story of indigenous rights in Malaysia is also lost on most of we Malaysians.
We believe the Orang Asli are occupying the govt. land insteadthe reverse been the fact
Yes, let’s hope Morni and his people will fare better now that more Malaysians are aware of their plight.
