February's Borneo Legends & Myths

Mount Kinabalu

The Mountain or hill is a sacred place for most indigenous peoples of Borneo, especially among the Kadazandusuns of Sabah, and the Dayaks of Sarawak and Kalimantan.  This is where their ancestors (and thus, they themselves) originated from, and this is the same place where they will go in the after-life. For this reason, these indigenous people  are also often refer to as "orang gunung" or "hill people" or sometimes "people from the mountain".  The legendary belief is that the mountain is like their "Heaven" or "Nirvana", the basis for their 'temporary' existence in the present world.  For similar reason, e-Borneo.com has adopted the mountain (i.e., Mount Kinabalu) as part of our first logo to symbolically represent the 'starting point' of an Electronic Borneo, one that is electronically connected to the world wide web.
