Borneo Gawai - Kaamatan Virtual Run 2019

JUNE BIGGEST FESTIVAL IN BORNEO

The Gawai Dayak & Tadau Kaamatan Harvest Festival in Borneo

Celebrated with enthusiasm across the island, the festival in Borneo is a multi-day harvest festival held on May 30th to honor the island's indigenous people.

The Festival  translates to "Harvest Day"; however, celebrations can last for a month!

Weddings are deliberately scheduled in June to take advantage of Harvest Festival. The term indigenous people including the Kadazan, Bajau, Iban, Bidayuh, Kayan, Kenyah, Kelabit, Murut and over 200 other tribes which once roamed Borneo, sometimes relieving unsuspecting traders of their heads.

Although steeped in headhunting traditions of the past, the only head removed these days during the festival belongs to a chicken sacrificed to honor a successful rice harvest.

Harvest Festival is to Borneo's proud indigenous tribes. More than just a kitschy demonstration of indigenous culture for tourists (although there is some of that), the festival is celebrated with genuine joy and enthusiasm — an occasion for weddings and joyous family reunions.

Gawai Dayak in Modern Times

Forget the romanticized stereotypes — not all of Borneo's indigenous people still live in longhouses or choose to don a traditional costume during the festival. You'll see far more baseball caps worn on heads than hornbill feathers these days.

Many Borneoan have moved from their rural homes into the cities in search of work. Urban Borneoan communities may choose to celebrate their holiday simply by taking time off work — a rare occasion — to visit family outside of the city.
