At Voice of Borneo

In the [event] Voice of Borneo, shares the story of the boat activities and cruise Perahu Pustaka (Instagram: @perahupustaka). My friend, @ttsssuu, also shares stories of his works. We met with young writers, such as Ms. Restiana Purwaningrum who was also active in literacy activities in her native area, Sintang.

Ensaid Panjang

In Ensaid Panjang, there are 28 rooms which means 28 houses. The mothers weave from noon to late afternoon. We stayed in a special room for guests. Night falls and we all gather to listen to bekana (‘fairy tales’) from one of the grandmothers who are also trusted to guard the stairs of women and bedudu (‘speak with chants’), such as mattedze in Mandar.
