Inside Look at Indigenous Issues

YL4S had a very special end-year workshop on indigenous communities at Kinabalu Park and Bundu Tuhan from 30th November to 3rd December 2017. The workshop-cum-field trip brought our Young Leaders to Kinabalu Park to witness the Kakakapan id Gayo Ngaran celebration, an annual pilgrimage to Mount Kinabalu for the Dusun communities who live in the surrounding areas. YL4S also had the honour of meeting the Council of Elders who shared their knowledge and stories on Dusun tradition and heritage. Seen here is one of Bundu Tuhan’s community leaders, Dominic Ghani, explaining the concept of ‘hutan bombon’ (community-led forest reserves).
