Shaq Koyok: Combining Art & Activism for Indigenous Peoples & Planet

Shahar “Shaq” Koyok is an artist from the Temuan Orang Asli tribe of Selangor. An activist as well, Shaq has long been combining art and activism to shine an often missing light on Orang Asli culture and traditions, but also to speak up about the struggles and challenges faced by the various OA communities, here in Malaysia. Shaq joins us to share more about his passion for art and activism, and why he believes that his artworks are an important medium of activism for the Orang Asli community.
