Noun. From Dyak.
“An guide who appears in a dream or vision and provides clarity to a problem”
Dyak is spoken in Borneo. The literal translation of ngarong is ‘dream helper’ (according to Merriam-Webster) and it’s pronounced something like ‘nn-gah-wrong.’ I have no idea if the picture above is of a ngarong, but it still looks pretty nice!
Islanders on Borneo believe in the ngarong as those who guide decisions with advice from the high status imaginary spirit world; the opposite to the succubi and incubi of European mythology.
