The Bidayuh is a name of a tribe on Borneo island. They are a subgroup of the Borneo Dayak tribe. Bidayuhs originally came from the western part of Borneo. They were called Land Dayaks by the British who colonised the part of Borneo called Sarawak which is now a state in Malaysia. They are one of the main indigenous ethnic groups in Sarawak and now are settled in the northwestern part of Borneo, or southwestern Sarawak, around Kuching and Samarahan in the Malaysian state of Sarawak. Bidayuhs are also found in west Kalimantan. They are the second largest Dayak ethnic group in Sarawak after the Iban tribe (Iban)].
And here are the Orang Ulu:
Orang Ulu ("remote people") is an ethnic designation politically coined to group together roughly 27 very small but ethnically diverse tribal groups in Sarawak, with a population ranging from less than 300 persons to over 25,000 persons. The Orang Ulu typically live in longhouses elaborately decorated with murals and woodcarvings. They are also well-known for their intricate beadwork detailed tattoos. The Orang Ulu tribes can also be identified by their unique music - distinctive sounds from their sape', a plucked boat-shaped lute, formerly with two strings, nowadays usually with four strings. I have written about sape before, click here.
