A graceful dance performed by an Orang Ulu dressed in full regalia of the warrior - a vest of animal skin, a headgear of colourful beads and hornbill feathers, a long knife, a bamboo container of darts girded round his waist and a blowpipe in hand. The dance portrays the nimble and stealthy steps of the hunter as he goes about in the jungle searching for his prey. He sees his target, takes aim and blows out a deadly dart, which seldom fails to find its mark.
