Then I was very interested in visiting the Semai people from Malaysia because I have heard a lot about them, specially for their education system and gift economy model. I did make it either, but I will present anyway some information about them.
It is thought that the Semai are the remnants of the original, ancient and widespread population of Southeast Asia.
The Semai are horticulturalists who have a gift economy. They are among the indigenous peoples of Malaysiai who have been pushed into the hills and mountains by later, more technologically powerful incoming peoples. They have no police and no government per se. Adults appear to be controlled primarily by public opinion. The Semai themselves say "There is no authority here but embarrassment." Although popular and verbally facile individuals are influential in public affairs, the Semai have no formal leaders..
Semai children are never punished or forced against their will.(If a parent asks a child to do something and the child says "I don't want to," the matter is ended..Children also appear to be taught to fear their own aggressive impulses.[ The concept of mengalah or giving in is most cherished where children since young are taught to 'give way' to others so as to preserve the peace and harmony of the village.
The games Semai children play are non-competitive. These games include forms of sports that encourage physical activity and exertions so that the body becomes tired and are therefore made ready for sleep and the subsequent dreaming.
The Semais, has non-violent and pacifist tendencies, harmonized with other prevailing religions of their adoption.
