Download Where Hornbills Fly PDF eBookThis is an enlightening and brilliantly-written book about the way of life of Iban Dayaks of Borneo (Kalimantan), who used to be headhunters during the White Rajahs’ reign and for a period colonized until finally achieved independence within Malaysia. The Ibans people are among the most extraordinary indigenous tribes in the world. They hold ancient traditions and unique cultures inherited from generations before.
As a young man Erik Jensen settled in Sarawak where he lived with the Iban for seven years, learning their language and the varied rites and practices of their lives. In this compelling and beautifully-wrought memoir, Erik Jensen reveals the challenges facing the Iban as they adapt to another century, whilst fighting to preserve their identity and singular place in the world. Haunting, yet hopeful, Where Hornbills Fly opens a window onto a vanishing world and paints a remarkable portrait of this fragile tribe, which continues to survive deep in the heart of Borneo.
