The book will appeal to readers who are concerned about the local indigenous people, for example the Penan,” the authors say.

In an effort to provide a new perspective on the plight of local ethnic communities within the Sela’an-Linau forest management unit’s jurisdiction, authors K.C. Linggi and Diana S. Raja wrote their new book “Sela’an-Linau Odyssey” (published by Partridge Singapore).

Both Linggi and Raja work for the Sela’an-Linau Forestry Management Unit (FMU) of Borneo, Malyasia – a region in which many indigenous groups reside, including the Kayan, Kelabit, Kenyah and Penan. These people live off the land and resources available to them within the forest, hunting wildlife for sustenance and harvesting wood as a source of revenue.

In their new book, Linggi and Raja discuss the ways in which forest management can create a more sustainable community for these indigenous peoples. They also delineate the culture, adventure and natural landscape existing within the Sela’an-Linau forest region.

“The book will appeal to readers who are concerned about the local indigenous people, for example the Penan,” the authors say. “The culture, adventure and nature mentioned in the book will appeal to tourists and nature enthusiasts, too.”
