We began a new morning by visiting the Penan settlement, an indigenous tribe in Sarawak. Though nomadic before, the re-settled Penan now rely humbly on crafts and farming to support their livelihood. Many Penans were resettled by Christian missionaries; it's not surprising to find a church in the compound.
