Children of the Iban tribe
Malaysia (Borneo), Sarawak, April 2011

This photo was taken in one of the so-called longhouses where most of the Iban people of Sarawak live (20 or more families in one house). The Ibans are a branch of the Dayak people of Borneo. They were renowned for practising headhunting. In ancient times the Ibans were a strong and successful warring tribe in Borneo.
The longhouse in this picture can only be reached by boat, a 30 min. trip through the jungle of Sarawak: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iban_people

They seem interested in modern fashions, in spite of the remoteness of their village!
This is a lovely shot, Peter.

I used to drive into the Rainforest and visit a family of Iban quite frequently. Lovely friendly people. I also visited a longhouse and travelled up the River Belite by canoe(not called a canoe forgot the correct name for it.)
Lovely photos, bring back happy memories.
