Description: Olui Akem, an experienced Penan hunter. Some Penan still wear the traditional 'avet' (loincloth). Every Penan hunter has with him at all times, a keleput (blowpipe), tabo (a tubular bamboo case that holds poison darts), telau (a dried gourd to hold flyers or stoppers of the dart, made of sago pith) and parang (a very sharp machete). Penans are known to be masters of tracking and hunting.
