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.
