The Orang Asli are indigenous people and their community are scattered in remote areas of Peninsular Malaysia. According to our study, the Orang Asli has many interesting cultural heritage that are not commonly known to others outside their community. As with many indigenous tribes all over the world, the Orang Asli’s original culture and knowledge are slowly being eroded by modernization and assimilation. If left unchecked, one day their rich knowledge of the forest, folklore, dances, traditional dress and other cultural heritage will be lost forever. Efforts to save the cultural heritage have been carried out by the Malaysian government such as the setting up of the Orang Asli museums. However, accessibility is an important issue. With many physical organizations, the knowledge repositories of the museums are only available to those who could take time to visit the museums during their opening hours. The 1 Malaysia Orang Asli Community Portals (Cultural Heritage Repository System) is an effort to act as a supplementary Knowledge Management repository for the Orang Asli museums. With the portal, the cultural heritage of the Orang Asli will be accessible to the whole world at any time and by electronic means. Multimedia information, in the form of text, pictures, video and audio are stored systematically in an ontological structure for easy retrieval and dissemination. This project was carried out by studying the needs and requirements of the various stakeholders and the Orang Asli communities in Johor by applying Action Research and Soft System Methodologies. This project is one of the components in the Orang Asli Community Portal Project carried out under the Information Service System Innovation (ISSI) Research Group.
