Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Orang Cocos are an ethnic group residing in Sabah, eastern Malaysia on the island of Borneo. They primarily reside in Kampung Cocos near Lahad Datu in Tawau Division. Originally from the Cocos (Keeling) Islands (now part of Australia), they settled this area in the 1950s. Their current population of around 4000 is about eight times larger than the population remaining in the Cocos Islands themselves. They are accorded bumiputra status by the federal government. Their language, a variant of standard Malay, has the ISO designation of ISO 639-3 coa.
