Product Description

Flying Lizards invites you to get to know, and have access to, the rich oral tradition of the Orang Asli.

Orang Asli oral tradition includes myths about their view of the world and its genesis; heroic accounts of revered personalities (whether real or fictitious); a catalogue of do’s and don’ts to ensure the desired social behaviour; an encyclopaedia of knowledge and information necessary for successful utilization of the natural resources; yarns and tales to amuse, entertain and educate; and accounts of personal experiences of the elders and of those who came earlier.

Amassed by past generations and passed down to its present heirs, Orang Asli oral tradition has been used to amuse, to teach, to record, to remind and to explain. The Orang Asli create stories and narratives not only to make sense of the world but to impart important social and ethical mores to ensure community living and continuity.
