Penan

The Penan are a nomadic aboriginal people living in Sarawak and Brunei.

They are one of the last such peoples remaining.

The Penan are noted for their practice of 'Molong' which means never taking more than necessary.

Most Penan people were nomadic hunter-gatherers until the post-World War II missionaries settled many of the Penan, mainly in the Ulu-Baram district but also in the Limbang district.

They eat plants, which are also used as medicines, and animals and use the hides, skin, fur, and other parts for clothing and shelter.
