Journeying through the Heart of Borneo. Pesta Nukenen 2018. The interior of Sarawak is home to more than 30 distinct linguistic groups and communities - each with their own cultural heritage and homeland areas. The River Baram is home to Iban, Kayan, Kenyah, Penan, Sabahan and Kelabit communities - to name just a few. The photographs trace a journey through the upper catchments of the beautiful Baram River : from Batu Betong and Pa Dali to the festival site of Pesta Nukenen in Bario and the forest near Long Banga. Sarawak’s rural air service provides regular / daily flights from Miri to Bario, Long Banga, Long Lellang, Long Akah with family-owned home-stays to be found at all of them. The WWF Heart of Borneo conservation area is a trans-boundary project supported by Indonesia, Brunei, Sabah, Sarawak and the Malaysian federal government. It commits each state / country to support sustainable forestry practices and community-led sustainable development across a large swathe of traditionally farmed and forested catchment areas in the highlands of central Borneo.
