The Borneo Post (Sabah) - - HOME -

PENSIANGAN: Ilau Panawari, namely, a fes­ti­val aimed at unit­ing the Mu­rut in the past must be or­gan­ised ev­ery year to high­light the unique­ness of the cul­ture and up­hold the eth­nic group.

Ilau Panawari Fes­ti­val ad­vi­sor Ma­tusin Eloh, 61, said the or­gan­i­sa­tion of the fes­ti­val was very im­por­tant to en­sure the Mu­rut young gen­er­a­tions knew their cul­ture.

“As the fes­ti­val has not been held for the past 40 years, it is in­creas­ingly for­got­ten. So, its or­gan­i­sa­tion this year is the first step for us to con­tinue to ap­pre­ci­ate and cel­e­brate this fes­ti­val ev­ery year,” he said when met at the 2019 Pensiangan level Ilau Panawari Fes­ti­val here on Satur­day.

The fes­ti­val was launched by Sabah Chief Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Ap­dal. - Ber­nama
