Orang Kenyah

There are few findings on the exact origin of the Kenyah tribe. Their heartland however, is Long San, along the Baram River. Their culture is very similar to that of the Kayan tribe with whom they live in close association.

The typical Kenyah village consists of only one longhouse and the people are mainly farmers, planting rice.

I am sad and sorry on your understanding explaining on the history of the Ngurek, which is totally weird and untrue. Where on earth did your got that story, the government authorities regard Ngurek can be call Kayan. I am proud to be KENYAH TRIBE, NGUREK from Long Semiyang. I am pure Ngurek.
Ako anak Kenyah, Ngurek. My ancestors/parent do not want Ngurek to be called, Kayan, Orang Puteh or any other races where we are actually belong to.
Whoever you are, shamed on you. We sound more like those guys gossips on the street walk. You are writing nonsense. You reason my generation base on your own narrow and childish understanding.

Official ceremony of newly completed modern long house at Long Banyok on 25th July 2009, all "anak Ngoreks" are encourage to make your trip home during this historical event. For those who are interested to see how the ngoreks live, cultures, language, you are most welcome. Long Banyok is situated in the middle part of Baram, about 5 - 6 hours express boat journey from Kuala Baram, transit at Marudi before arriving. Today, there`s a new road link direct to the village, it takes about 5 hours drive from Miri-Lapok-Long Banyok. [ Sad to say, the Bakong - Lapok stretch is still as it is since it exist ]. Hope those anak Ngorek concern can help to organise or arrange for proper transportation for this event so that more people can attend. Thanks.

I thank you all for posting these information on these people. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of information about these people which I could not source and therefore the major groups are shown on this site only.

It is unfortunate that other ethnics will be classified in this manner.

On the other hand, if you have information regarding these races and that they should be classified in their own right, please do write to us with all the necessary information and provide some form of source for it, we will post this information up.

Thanks for your write up. Some correction; for your info,'ngureks are not kenyah in term of race. Ngureks is a different race by itself,but because of ngurek`s similarity with kenyah and kayan culture/social lives,the then gov't authorities regard them as kenyah, otherwise also can be kayan. pls. get more info about this race. I understand there's more Ngurek living in Kalimantan,Batang Kayan.In Baram only 2 villages; Long Banyok and Long Semiyang.

Incidentally, in Baram, Kenyah settlements are also found in Uma Akeh, Long Puak, Long Banyo (Kenyah Murek) and Long Ekang (or Long Ikang) which is really a confluent of ehnic Kenyah. Long Ekang has various Kenyah dialects living togather in the same village. They are principally Long Ulai, Long Sebatu, Murek, Long Belukun, Lepo' Jalan, Lepo' Kulit, Lepo' Tau, Ngurek Puah', Bakong, Lepo' Tukong and many more. Long Ekang also has a Kayan long house. So in Baram, the Kenyah are not confined to villages between Long San and Lio Matu only. Kenyah are also found in the Tinjar and Apoh are.
