Abstract

The Assessment conducted on the Lojing highland community of Senoi from the Temiar tribe can serve as a reference for further research in the field of social science that will be of immense benefit to management of the highland. This research seeks to answer questions on their acceptance toward visitors and to identity forms of traditional values and culture that can contribute to the mutual acceptance between both parties. The Temiar community possesses a distinctive attitude toward their sense of hospitality, respect and services. They also perceive visitors as a potential source of income. In a similar way, it applies to their willingness to coexist with the outsiders, modernization, cultural sentiments and sensitivity, religious practices, hedonism, education and brotherhood. They do not easily become the object of ridicule despite their inbred introversion and commendable affability. Their welfare should be prioritized so that others do not take advantage of their innocence and naivety. Values, culture and norms embraced by people of Lojing are indeed unique to explore. However this does not impede their openness in accepting influx of visitor to their place. Moreover, this process takes place in wake of national integrity as well as the optimization of man power and natural resources to the benefit of society and the nation as a whole.
