These are the Semang or Pangan, the Sakai or Jakun, and the Malays.
The most civilized of this people are seldom seen even by the Sakai.
The mistake of speaking of the Sakai tribes as practically identical with the Semang or Pangan has very frequently been made, but as a matter of fact the two races are absolutely distinct from one another.
It has also been customary to include the Sakai in the category of Malayan races, but this too is undoubtedly incorrect.
The Sakai still inhabit in greatest numbers the country which forms the interior of Pahang, the Plus and Kinta districts of Perak, and the valley of Nenggiri in Kelantan.
