Introduction / History

Narom speaking people have survived raids by some neighbors and wars with others. Yet they have managed to earn their living through trading with other tribes, even when Chinese traders could have taken over their trade routes. The Narom people managed to survive by cementing alliances through marriages.

Narom is a language more than a people group. There are two dialects of this language.


Where Are they Located?

Narom speakers live in Sarawak, a state of Malaysia on the island of Borneo.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The Narom speaking people are noted for their love of music.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The primary religion practiced by the Narom people is Islam, a monotheistic religion built around the teachings of the Koran and of the prophet Mohammad.


What Are Their Needs?

The Narom people need to allow the grace and love of Jesus to affect their communities.
