bajau sama versus orang laut[edit]

please anybody out there knew the relationship between bajau sama and orang laut of riau?? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.50.165.1 (talk) 07:42, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Merge with Urak Lawoi?[edit]

The article Urak Lawoi says another name for that group is Orang laut, and looking at book sources this seems to be true, or at least Urak Lawoi is a northern sub-group of Orang laut. I think the pages would be best merged rather than discussing the same group twice. Fences&Windows 01:11, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Oppose There are lots of people called Orang Laut. You could just as easily argue that it should be merged with Aboriginal Malay. — kwami (talk) 06:17, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

No merge[edit]

The Urak Lawoi are a ethnic sub-group of the Orang Laut, as well as the Duano. Although a merger would be possible, it is also not wrong to leave the article.

A wrong statement however is, that it is an alternative name for Orang Laut.
