SABAH DAP VISITS NUNUK RAGANG沙巴民主行动党探访卡达山人发源地NUNUK RAGANG

Sabah DAP leaders led by Chief YB Dr. Hiew King Cheu are making a tour of the East Coast of Sabah starting 29th April 2010. YB Dr. Hiew who is also the MP for Kota Kinabalu is accompanied by Vice Chairman Edward Ewol Mujie, Publicity Secretary Dr. Edwin Bosi, Deputy Publicity Chief John Lee, Peter Lee, Tuaran Branch Chairman and member Edward Liew. On 30th April, the Sabah DAP will meet up with DAP National Advisor and DAP Parliament leader Sdr. Lim Kit Siang in Tawau. YB Lim Kit Siang is expected to be on a 2-day visit to Tawau.

At Kg. Tampias which is along Ranau-Telupid road, the Sabah DAP made a visit to Nunuk Ragang, a site believed to be the first settlement of the Native in Sabah. Thereafter, the tribe spread out to many corners of Sabah, then North Borneo. Here, at Nunuk Ragang the paramount chief of the KadazanDusun or Huguan Siou is installed and subsequently “blessed” every July of the year.

沙巴民主行动党州主席邱庆洲博士与党员们于四月二十九日起前往探访沙巴东海岸。 邱博士同时也是亚庇国会议员,陪同前往东海岸的有行动党州副主席爱德华慕吉,宣传秘书艾德温博西医生,副席宣秘书李金星,斗亚兰支部负责人刘辉坚和党员刘 氏。  沙巴民主行动党将于四月三十日在斗湖与行动党顾问兼国会领袖顾问会面。 林吉祥预计在斗湖进行2天的访问。

沿着兰瑙-得鲁彼(Ranau-Telupid)的途中,沙巴民主行动党团队低达了甘邦担必阿士(Kg. Tampias),他们前往探访卡达山人的发源地Nunuk Ragang, 土著族群相信该处是沙巴州第一个土著的定居点,接着他们从那里分散到沙巴州的各处角落,然后散布到整个北婆罗洲。  从此以后每年的七月,卡达山杜顺族酋长或土族英雄将会在Nunuk Ragang举办一项‘祝福’仪式。


YB Dr. Hiew expressed his disappointment that KDCA who is managing this site is not doing enough to promote its historical and cultural significance. YB Hiew feels that Sabah Tourism Promotion should be interested. The site looks deserted while the structure, a resemblance of a Ficus tree or Nunuk in the Native language, is beginning to look like a swallow home. The exhibits are looking yellowish and smeared with swallow droppings.

The Keeper, Jais Sataip said the “funfair” only starts in the first week of July every year where the Huguan Siou will be blessed. There are no visitors or tourists visiting the site, he continued. YB Hiew feels that the influx of visitors or tourists to Nunuk Ragang will not only be good for the KadazanDusun community but also, provides some economic activity to the village.

沙巴民主行动党探访卡达山人发源地NUNUK RAGANG

沙巴民主行动党州主席邱庆洲博士与党员们于四月二十九日起前往探访沙巴东海岸。 邱博士同时也是亚庇国会议员,陪同前往东海岸的有行动党州副主席爱德华慕吉,宣传秘书艾德温博西医生,副席宣秘书李金星,斗亚兰支部负责人刘辉坚和党员刘 氏。  沙巴民主行动党将于四月三十日在斗湖与行动党顾问兼国会领袖顾问会面。 林吉祥预计在斗湖进行2天的访问。

沿着兰瑙-得鲁彼(Ranau-Telupid)的途中,沙巴民主行动党团队低达了甘邦担必阿士(Kg. Tampias),他们前往探访卡达山人的发源地Nunuk Ragang, 土著族群相信该处是沙巴州第一个土著的定居点,接着他们从那里分散到沙巴州的各处角落,然后散布到整个北婆罗洲。  从此以后每年的七月,卡达山杜顺族酋长或土族英雄将会在Nunuk Ragang举办一项‘祝福’仪式。

邱博士对卡达山杜顺协会并没有好好的管理该土著发源地感到很失望,尤其是有着促进其历史背景和文化的重大意义。 邱博士认为沙巴旅游局应该有兴趣推广该发源地。 该处目前看起来有点荒凉,而似无花果树或Nunuk(土族母语)的建筑物,看起来像一个燕子的家。  该建筑物的外观已经逐渐泛黄及到处都是燕粪。 

负责看守该处的雅伊萨泰(Jais Sataip)说,卡达山杜顺族的‘祝福’仪式和节目会在每年七月的第一个星期举行,到时将会有土著英雄祝福仪式及其他的节目,他继续说,但是没有任何访 客或游客前往该处。 邱博士指出若游客前往Nunuk Ragang旅游,将不仅对卡达山杜顺社会有很大的益处,而且也能够提升和推动该处甘榜的经济状况。
