Tenom – Weapons of the Murut tribe
One might think these pouches are for show but in Kampung Tilis, you will still find them being carried around. They contain darts used for hunts in the forest. These darts might or might not be poisonous. Look at the potion-looking bottle. That’s where the poison is kept. Some men prefer to dip their darts into the poison before keeping them in their pouch. Others prefer to keep clean darts and only dip them into the poison just before use because an accidental touch of the poison could be fatal.
