Item description for Penan Histories: Contentious Narratives in Upriver Sarawak (Verhandelingen Van Het Koninklijk Instituut Voor Taal-, Land- En Volkenkunde) by Tim Bending...

In the late 1980s the Penan of Sarawak, East Malaysia, became an environmentalist cause celebre for a campaign of protests, blockading logging roads in an attempt to preserve the rainforest areas in which they lived. This book sets out to re-narrate the recent past of a Penan village. It is an ethnographic examination of the transition from nomadism to agriculture and employment in the timber industry, to protest against that industry, and back once more to working as loggers; a story also of cultural change, collective action, and individual corruption. Of interest to all those concerned with the ethnography of indigenous groups in Southeast Asia and with the politics of indigenous peoples, the book has significance in its consideration of the textual, political issues faced in narrating and explaining the actions of other people in other places.
