Jabu Anak Udin, an elderly Iban sits out...
Photo Details
Image #: DSC_0386-40001
Location: Kampung Sungai Babi, Sarawak
Description: Jabu Anak Udin, an elderly Iban sits outside his longhouse. His 'kampung' (village) is 34 years old (when this photo was taken in 2008). The 'tuai rumah' (head of the longhouse) then was Enjop Anak Manja. Ibans make up the largest percentage of Sarawak's population. Once fierce and feared headhunters of Borneo, they have now long put aside their old and animistic ways and are predominantly of the Christian faith, although some still hold strong to their many traditional rituals and beliefs.
