"Kopivosian". That means greetings in the language of my native tribe, the Kadazans of Sabah, Malaysian Borneo.

The Sabah Fest is held every year in the month of May. The Sabah Heritage Village will be hounded by professional and hobbyist photographers as this is a great opportunity to capture the native tribes of Sabah in their traditional costumes, dancing their dances in their traditional houses and hearing the sounds of their gongs and instruments, all in one place. This is Harmony In Diversity.

Here is a collage of a few of the tribes.

Top row left to right: Kadazan men of Penampang (my tribe), Berunai girl & Kadazan woman from Papar.

Middle row left to right: Murut man, Lotud woman, Bajau girl.

Bottom row left to right: Murut girl, Rungus girl, Rungus man.

Kotohuadan :-) Thank you & have a good day everyone.
