Traditional Tuesday – in Sarawak

Traditional Tuesday – in Sarawak

Former students doing the Sarawak dance at the end of the enterostomaltherapy (ET) nursing program. The lady in the middle, Helen Bampa, taught the other two. Helen belongs to an aboriginal group called Kenyah (Orang Ulu). It was a beautiful dance and memory. The latter two had gone back to Vietnam. I miss them all!

According to Helen, the dance is called Ngajat Datun Julut. It is performed during opening ceremonies, welcoming VIPs, and during wedding functions.
