A song by the Kenyah:
Pemongjai telu tuyang…
alem ini alem ini edang bulan…
alem, alem ini…
edang, edang bulan….
atek’lan, nelana lo ina….
Alem ini telu tuyang pemongjai…
Pemonjai telu tuyang…
When I first started this blog, my dream was to write what I know about my culture and heritage for the world to read.
Now, I write because I feel a responsibility to disseminate largely hidden information that are usually tucked between the dusty sheets of science journals and scholar gazettes.
I’ve always wondered why are there so much information, yet most of it is inaccessible to the curious public? I’ve always thought the purpose of all these researches is so that laymen, like you and me, can learn more about who and what we are, and what will become of us.
It’s sad that the majority will never know, and most of what is found will probably never see the light of day.
And the truth will set you free.
Let everyone know, start a blog, post it on your Facebook, but let’s learn about our dying culture together and be proud of this beautiful, fiery culture that carried our ancestors through aeons.
It’s our land, our life, our love.
