Finally Amde’s work,The Mystic of Borneo – Kadayan was successfully launched yesterday, 26 June 2008. The function was jointly-organized by Sabah Society and Ministry of Tourism, Culture & Environment (Sabah).

Revised version [video added], 27 June 2008.



Guests and journalists were cramped into the main room of Sabah Society office. It was something that they don’t expect to become crowd puller, the organizer said.

Mr. Amde said the book does not meant to be academic in nature but, rather, a snapshot of Kadayans people in time.

Datuk Masidi Manjun, Minister of Tourism, Culture & Environment (Sabah), guest of honor, in his keynote address said that Kadayans are the fascinating people of Borneo from cultural dynamic point of view. According to him, there are many well educated Kadayans in Sabah. Apparently, they had chosen education as a way to enhance the quality of life. Kadayans are also politically active, and, until now have final say to decide who should became leaders in places where they are the majority. These can be seen from the experience of BERJAYA party in Labuan in 1970s, again, the experience of PBS in Sipitang in 1980s.

Also present were ADUN of Sindumin, Tn Hj Ahmad Hj Bujang, Tengku Datuk Dr Hj Zainal Adlin of Sabah Society, businessman Datuk Hj. Isli Siput, Hj. Zahir @ Jerry Moots and Mr. Kassim Supinah – Amde's longtime friends and staunch supporters, Mr Thanda – Amde's secondary school teacher, and a guest from University Brunei Darussalam.

Terima kasih. Sebenarnya saya juga gembira jika dapat berjumpa sdr kelmarin. Tapi saya terpaksa bergegas dari majlis berkenaan kerana ada hal di luar.

Mungkin kita boleh berjumpa di lain masa. Sdr boleh menghantar email kepada saya di ruangan contact me di arimi.ath.cx bila-bila masa.

ini satu perubahan yg baik terutama bagi masyarakat kedayan yang tidak lagi tinggal di kawasan asal kaum kedayan. tidak dapat dinafikan generasi muda kedayan yang dibesarkan mahupun belajar di kawasan bandar mungkin kurang mahir tentang apa itu kedayan sendiri. apa pun, saya harap setiap orang yang berbangsa kedayan merasa bangga dengan asal usul mereka

Saya sebagai seorang Kadayan, amat berbangga dengan pelancaran buku karya Sdr Amde Sidek yang berjudul The Mystic of Borneo - Kadayan. Bagi saya ini merupakan satu langkah awal untuk sukukaum Kadayan di Sabah khasnya dan Sarawak & Brunei amnya untuk memperkasakan suku kaum ini supaya ianya tidak akan pupus ditelan zaman.

Saya berharap generasi pelapis Kadayan tidak akan lalai dan alpa dek keadaan persekitaran yang amat mencabar sehingga kita lupa siapa kita dan dari mana asal kita.

Tahniah buat Sdr Amde dan teruskan menulis buku-buku yang ada berhubungkait dengan budaya & tradisi suku kaum Kadayan. Tahniah!

Salleh Salam - Tahniah |2008-06-28 20:22:58
Tahniah lagi. Sesungguhnya satu usaha yang mulia untuk sekarang dan jenerasi kemudian.
