'There is a reason why I draw these places that I have been to. I want to tell the future generation about their existence. These places all have their own history and culture,' says Saluji Yeok So Alu about his book 'Let The Maps Speak!' (Biar Pete de Besuara!). Photos: The Bridge Communication

When Orang Asli artist Saluji Yeok So Alu completed his first illustrated book, Nenek Dengan Yeok Luat, about two years ago, he was already raring to work on a second one.

Nenek Dengan Yeok Luat, brought to life by Saluji’s watercolour paintings, is a book about awareness and the preservation of the Semai tribe’s tradition of sharing knowledge, culture, and history orally.
