Most of the present longhouses were resettled and built by the timber company. Still many still maintain their nomadic way of life. Most Penan children don't go to school because of distance, availability of school and transportation problem and it take time to change their lifestyle.
Recent visit to their longhouses show they have improved tremendously over the years but they will need to learn new skills, come out to the society and put their children to school.
I have took some photos during a short term education mission trip there bought in by our Miri Methodist churches. Most of the photos will be on the Penan children.
