Their origin is from Palin, Kalimantan. They moved in to Sarawak via Lubok Antu and settled there for a few years (legend has it was for about a few hundred years). Then, in came the marauding Ibans from Kapuas (in Kalimantan), a powerful headhunting tribe at that time, attacking them and chasing them out of their homeland.
They fled to Saribas which is what is now in the Betong Division. There, they settled and built their community. During those years, they co-existed with the Ibans, after a peace sealed by the marriage of the daughter of their leader Entinggi to the son of the Iban chief Tindin. After many years, due to some misunderstandings, war broked out with the Ibans and they lost. They again fled to various places before settling in Sg. Merit, Bintulu and its vicinity until today.
