Sarawakian Local Delights : Home rolled cigars and guns

These two ladies are friends of my friend Sonia Lahung. They are cigar smoking and gun carrying.

In fact they are Iban women who are married into the Kayan coimmunity of Uma Bawang in Upper Baram. Here they are seen getting ready to walk 1 and 1.2 hours to a river side, from where they will drive their boat to their longhouse.

this is a temporary farm longhouse erected by their families from Uma Bawang, for their farming throughout the year.

These ladies are ready to shoot any game which come their way. As good if not better then their menfolks!!

Well done!!
