Sarawak's Tuyang Initiative brings Dayak culture to the world

Who is Apai Saloi? Have you heard about a bird named “Kangkaput”? Do you know why instead of a handshake or a hug goodbye, you get black stains (soot) on your face after a ceremonial gathering in a Kenyah or Kayan longhouse?

Throughout this movement control order (MCO) period, the Tuesday Tales, a new online storyteller project by Sarawak-based The Tuyang Initiative, has been offering a series of wonderful folk tales, short stories and bedtime lullabies from various indigenous communities in Sarawak, especially the Kenyah, Iban and Penan tribes.
