Recently, Mr Frank Faurillo was in Tuaran and witnessed the following ritual being performed by some old ladies of the Dusun Lotud. The following clip is made available courtesy of Mr Faurillo.
Could this be the Mamahui Pogun ritual, a rite to cleanse the universe? The Rungus has similar rite too. Done every 50th and 100th years to cleanse the land.
Frank found out that it was the last time the ritual was going to be conducted because the younger generation of Dusun Lotuds are not interested in continuing with the tradition. Most having converted to Islam and Christianity.
NBHE remembers and look forward for anyone to come forward to provide details of the Dusun Lotud's vanishing rituals.
