Description: An Iban woman returns home to her longhouse. Strapped to her back is a 'raga' (basket) full of jungle produce. The longhouse is a communal living concept that still exists even in present days. Each one has its own headman called 'tuai rumah'. Longer ones like this can house several hundred people and are considered a village. The size of longhouses here are measured by the number of doors, one door per family.
