Writing, reading, and understanding words, simple sentences, and applying that knowledge to the learning process and everyday conversations is known as literacy. The greatest obstacle to Jakun Asli pupils successfully mastering the Malay language is the indigenous students' incorrect mastery of the Malay grammatical structure. In order to determine and discuss the many kinds of grammatical mistakes made by Orang Asli Jakun students at Sekolah Kebangsaan Kampung Bharu in Lenga Johor.  This study uses qualitative methods by focusing on content analysis and interviews. A total of 30 sets of grammar exercises were given to Level 1 students. This study uses Corder's Theory of Error Analysis (1973). The findings show that there are 4 types of grammar mistakes made by the students of the Jakun Native pupils, namely changing letters with other letters, dropping letters in words, adding letters in words and redundancy in sentences. The results of this study also found that factors such as weak mastery, lack of interest and lack of understanding of the Malay language are the main contributors to failure towards the achievement of Malay language literacy.
