What It’s About
In this episode, Dana sits down with Kennedy and Alyssa the founders of Naga Tapai. They
talk about the passion they have behind the project that is seeded in the indigenous culture of
Sabah and their desire to create a business that spurs economic growth in the indigenous
communities and how they built their whole business plan around it in a way that embraces
the uniqueness of the cultures while not commercializing it in an unauthentic way.
Naga Tapai produces traditional beverages and items steeped in the Kadazan-Dusun culture
without fetishsising the culture detrimentally.

believes that it’s time something this good is shared with the world, and preserving the
