Lifestyles of Aboriginal People on Malaysian Stamps

On the 27 of September the Malaysia Post issued a series of three stamps illustrating the life of Malaysian aborigines.

The indigenous peoples of Peninsular Malaysia are known as Orang Asli, which literally means "original person", is a catch all term for a variety of ancient peoples. They number about 60,000, and were the first inhabitants of the area. The most numerous of the Orang Asli are called Cerritos and are related to native Papuans in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea, and possibly even to aborigines in Australia.
