The Indonesian Malaysians, also known as Anak Dagang are Malaysian citizens of Indonesian ancestry. Today, there are many Malaysian Malays who have lineage from the Indonesian archipelago and have played an important role in the history and contributed to the development of Malaysia, they have been assimilated with other Malay communities and are grouped as part of the foreign Malays or anak dagang in terms of race. The Malaysian census does not categorize ethnic groups from the Indonesian archipelago as a separate ethnic group, but rather as Malays. In Malaysia, the definition of Malay is a person who can speak Malay, is Muslim, and follows Malay traditions and customs, even non-natives who marry Malays and embrace Islam are also accepted as Malays. In Malaysia there is a political trend of trying to put all ethnic groups who speak Malay and happen to be Muslim under one banner - Malay. This is not the case in Indonesia where all ethnic groups have their own cultural identities that are recognized and respected by the government.
