OH YES! Happy Harvest Festival 2011 or in Kadazan, Kotobian Tadau Tagazo Do Kaamatan 2011 or again, in our Bahasa Melayu, Selamat Hari Pesta Menuai 2011!.

Starting today, 30th and 31st May, 2011, it will be the most anticipated Public Holiday for our FRIENDS from Sabah, Kadazandusun and Murut communities.

Anyway, this Harvest Festival Celebration is actually to mark or remind Sabahans of the end of Paddy Harvesting season and it is when our kadazandusun and Murut people offer their thanksgiving to the GODS for the bountiful harvest. The celebration is unique to Sabah only. Now, to be honest it is The Unduk Ngadau Kaamatan or Harvest Queen Competition that really makes everyone waiting for. The story said that The Huminodun, the Harvest Queen, is the representative of a young lady who had sacrificed herself so that the kadazandusun and muruts have endless food. Its a very touchy story and therefore, meaningful celebration for Sabahans. Not to mention to those girls, ladies, who are competing for the title of Huminodun. By becoming the queen, you indirectly become the saviour of all Kadazandusun, saviour to all natives of Sabah.

To conclude, to all Kadazandusun, Muruts, natives of Sabah, Happy Harvest Festival 2011 and Kotobian Tadau Tagazo Do Kaamatan 2011.

Hope you will enjoy this video song:
