Gawai Naik Dango Landak Part 3-Harvest Thanksgiving Ceremony

Location : Kecamatan Ngabang, Kabupaten Landak, Kalimantan Barat, Indonesia.

Probably one of the most colourful event in Borneo. The men were all lined up in front of the Rumah Radakng dressed in their fearsome outfit looking handsome indeed. Beautiful long feathers of peacock, pheasant, hornbill and eagle adorned their headgears. Skulls of different species of monkeys were neatly arranged on their tree bark armours while wild boar tusks and beads were strung as necklaces to add to their invincibility. Mandau or machete strapped to their hips somewhat raised them to ‘Panglima’ status at least for once in a year. Their numbers could strike fear to any newcomer to this Borneo event. The ladies had simpler taste compared to the men but still looked good in mostly single coloured attires.Paddy Harverst Festival, authentic, backpackers, culture, ceremony, Dayak Kanayatn, native, etnis, tribe, Borneo, West Kalimantan, obyek wisata, traditional, travel guide, 原著民丰收节日naik dango, gawai dayak, indigenous, culture, traditional, event, native, tribal, Borneo, Indonesia, Kampung Budaya, Landak, Tourism, travel guide, 婆罗洲西加里曼丹 Naik Dango, Gawai Harverst Festival, backpackers, culture, event, indigenous, native, tribe, Indonesia, Landak, Ngabang, Travel guide, traditional, Rumah Radakng, 婆罗洲西加里曼丹Naik Dango, Gawai Harverst Festival, authentic, indigenous, culture, Etnis, native, Borneo, Indonesia, Landak, Ngabang, tourism, traditional, travel guide, 西加里曼丹丰收节日,

The Governor of Kalimantan Barat, a Landak native, Dr. Cornelius finally arrived to cut the red bamboo to officiate the opening of the event. Although the speech he gave was quite long, the crowd looked pretty entertained judging by the numerous applause and laughter, evidence of a very good public speaker.
