How To Be Good Native Allies

Native Discovery is a social enterprise with an ecommerce setup, which, as the story goes, began as an unexpected encounter between an enterprising Orang Asli aspirant, and a bright-eyed civil engineering student. The aim was to co-create community-based tourism ventures with indigenous communities in Peninsular Malaysia, to boost livelihoods while enabling respectful cultural discovery. The partners also want us all to discover the best of Orang Asli heritage with the goal of breaking stereotypes and encouraging healthy intercultural relationships. We speak to Daniel Teoh to find out more about Native Discovery, and also their latest offshoot, Native Allies Society, which aims to promote and advance indigenous allyship, and find meaningful ways to support OA communities in their journey of self determination.
