Bidayuh is the collective name for several indigenous peoples found in southern Sarawak, on the island of Borneo, that are broadly similar in language and culture.
The name “Bidayuh” means ‘inhabitants of land’. Originally from the western part of Borneo, the collective name Land Dayaks was first used during the period of Rajah James Brooke, the White Rajah of Sarawak.
With a population reaching 200,000 people, the Bidayuh constitute one of the main indigenous peoples in Sarawak.
