ALFUROS (ALFURES, HORAFORAS), a term of no ethnological value applied by the Malays to all the uncivilized non-Mahommedan peoples in the eastern portion of the Malay Archipelago. Its origin is uncertain, but its meaning is " wild " or " uncivilized." The term is not restricted to the aborigines, but is far more frequently used to describe the tribes of Malayan blood.
