Following the ancestral trails of the legendary Balang Lipang.
He was Leju Besara when he was young and was the Ketua Kampung (village head)
during the colonial era under Rajah James Brooke.
We are the Kelabit, one of the Sarawak's Indigenous peoples.
Our ancestors have been here circa 1771 and this is our ancestral land.
~ We are descended from the pre-colonial/pre-invasion inhabitants of our region.
We maintain a close tie to our land in both our cultural and economic practices. ~
