About the Author

About the author

Datuk Anthony Ratos is a dedicated friend of the Orang Asli, and has taken up many of their causes. His first contact with the Orang Asli was during the war, between 1942 and 1945, when he was taught the native secrets of foraging food from the jungles. Later, as a trainee teacher at Kirkby College (UK), he chose the aboriginal people of Peninsular Malaysia as the subject of his thesis. His interest in, and love for, the Orang Asli was further deepened when he served as Deputy Commissioner of the Orang Asli in Pahang from 1958 to 1963. He discovered the astonishing wood ¡Vcarving skills of the Jah Hut and Mah Meri tribes, and has collected hundreds of their sculptures and masks. He is known regionally and internationally for his involvement with aboriginal communities in Malaysia. Datuk Anthony Ratos is founder director of the Yaysasan Kesenian Orang Asli.
