The Uma Baka' tribe were originally from the rural center of Borneo Island. The tribe still remains in East Kalimantan, Indonesia, though some of them have moved to Sarawak, Malaysia. The tribe was known as the best hunters in jungle. The Uma Baka' people are considered as a sub-ethnic of the Kenyah people and their language is Uma Baka' language, which is a form of Kenyah language dialect.[1]

Today, their lives have totally changed. They are no longer head hunters. Some of their people have become very successful in education, business, religion and politics.
