Sarawak, Borneo Trip 2012
Awa doing the traditional dance called the ngajat.
We danced round a banana tree inside the long lounge of the long house. They invited the guest to join them. I was game and got up to join them, I wanted to show this to my students in New Zealand.
The first official program of the Kai Chung School Reunion was visiting an Iban long house. They put on a official welcome, Two lovely natives/Ibans/Sea dayaks came to welcome us. I went to talk with the beautiful Awa who is a senior in Binatangnor Government High School. I told her I taught in her school in 1978 before I went to New Zealand. This traditionl dress is very colourful.
