Abstract
The natural heritage asset creates indigenous tourism as a new niche tourism development.
Perak is the second-highest distribution of poverty rates in the Malaysian Peninsula. Using a qualitative
approach in-depth interviews, the paper concludes that the development of indigenous tourism Pos Kuala Mu
and Pos Yum Sungai Siput, Kuala Kangsar Perak can reduce poverty in the Temiar communities and has
become one of JAKOA‟s indigenous tourism development models to improve the livelihoods of indigenous
communities. The outcome also showed that strong leaders have played a significant role in providing a clear
vision for indigenous businesses that aligns community needs with the marketplace. In addition, good
accessibility and good infrastructure make a crucial contribution to the development of tourism. Pos Kuala Mu
and Pos Yum have shown that indigenous tourism is a new way of generating more income, as well as enabling
the Temiar community to improve their livelihoods, share traditions and preserve their heritage. Indigenous
tourism gives the Temiar community the opportunity to become an entrepreneur. It provide economic and social
returns to indigenous communities. Prosper indigenous businesses, particularly Pos Kuala Mu and Pos Yum
indigenous tourism, also leads to a reduced dependence on external sources of funding, including government
funding, where the community has the capacity to generate income.

Key words: Indigenous Tourism; Indigenous Businesses; Indigenous Tourism Development
