a group of Dayak tribes, including the Punan, Ukit, Beketan, and Basap tribes. The Punan live predominantly in Indonesia. They number approximately 60,000 (1972, estimate). Their languages belong to the Indonesian group of the Malayan-Polynesian language family. The Punan retain ancient and traditional religious beliefs. They are one of the oldest groups of nomadic gatherers and hunters, roaming the depths of the tropical forest near the headstreams of the rivers of Central Kalimantan. Their chief occupations are gathering wild fruits and resins and hunting.
