Description

"Ehhh macam Jakun la"
"Jakun la you"
"Don't be like one Jakun can or not"

Do these phrases sound familiar?

What is a playful jibe towards others is actually an Orang Asli (meaning original or first peoples in Malay) tribe name. The Jakun people are the second largest Orang Asli sub-groups in Malaysia.
In this episode, we spoke to Sherry Viviey, a half-Jakun youth on the discrimination and challenges faced by the Orang Asli community, and the misuse of her tribe name (usually used as a derogatory term).

Tune in to listen to the story title "Macam Jakun", written by our own Honey Ahmad, inspired by Sherry's story, and the amazing discussion we had with this feisty youth.
