Demographics of Brunei, Malay

Bruneian Malays[note 1] (Orang Melayu Brunei in Malay language; اورڠ ملايو بروني in Jawi script) are a native ethnic group that live in Brunei, Sabah, and Sarawak.[2][3] The Bruneian Malays are different from the larger Malay population in the Peninsular Malaysia especially in language and culture, even though they are ethnically related and follow the teachings of Islam.[4] All Bruneian Malays who are born in Malaysia since the independence were in the same status like the Malays and recognised as a Bumiputeras together with Kadazan-Dusuns, Ibans, Malaccan Portuguese and the Malaysian Siamese.
