September 20, 2014, Saturday
✈1
Seriously before I went to this festival, was expecting everything about photography and nothing much else, but this really surprise me...
********************************************************************************
说实在的,我所想像中的摄影节都是摄影的作品罢了,只是没有想到也会有宣传我国土族的传统文化
✈2
✈3
Here're some of their handmade productions, Mah Meri has been living in the island for almost 400 years, and they still in faith of their traditional cultural and the power of their god..
********************************************************************************


✈4
✈5
✈6
In their culture, female always talented in weaving, they started to make their own cloths, home decoration and baskets since they're young
********************************************************************************
此族婦女多為編織好手,從小就自行編織瑪美里族的傳統服裝、家中擺設裝飾及籃子等
✈7
While the male are talented in wood carving, and some of their products were even achieved international standard become infamous among all..
********************************************************************************
  
✈8
During the old times, their basic income were come from fishing, but some already move near to the orchards, working on agriculture...Thus their main income are mostly from the wood carving art..
********************************************************************************
  
✈9
From the record, prices of 2006 for 4 to 5ft wood carving art can sell as RM4,000 to RM5,000, while the small one is RM100 for one...
********************************************************************************
✈10
They've almost 460 types of different wood carving art, each of them has a myth. Most of the character are represent their god, human and animals... The wood material is called "Nyireh Batu", it takes 8 hours a day and 3 to 4 months to finish a 4 to 5ft wood carving, 3 to 7 days for a small one. In the ancient times, they use the wood carving as a disease curing item, every when people got sick, the witch would put on some spells, move the sickness of the person on to the wood carving...then throw it into the river or sea. Besides the wood craving, they have mask that called "Moyang Tok Naning". They hang it on top of their house door and wear it while putting spells ceremony......
********************************************************************************


✈11
I left after I've took pictures of the wood craving art but luckily I pass by here before I left to the entrance, if not I'll miss this...
********************************************************************************
我原先不知道他们有表演,是在过后经过的时候才发现到的

✈12
✈13
What to do? Got to squeeze in front there to take a "front view" picture what!
********************************************************************************
赶快挤到前面去拍照

✈14
Can't get into the middle because somebody has set his tripod on, so I only can stand to the side...
********************************************************************************
中间挤不到,挤到旁边去,其实还不赖啦。。。

✈15
Then they dancing circling the "something" in the middle
********************************************************************************
接着他们就绕这中间边跳舞边转圈圈

✈16
Their ancestor day in Malay is Hari Moyang, is one of they important in their ethic group...they will wear their traditional clothes and mask to celebrate, singing and dancing on that day...and actually the festive can last for two days..


Honestly I can't remember I've learn something like this during my school...and I get to know them more after I've did some research online as before I was thinking they're from the east Malaysia...but now I've learn something new today!!
********************************************************************************


还真的见识不少,经过查资料才知道他们的资料。。很惭愧的说,我本来还以为他们是来自东马的土族,原来他们只是来自很近的雪蘭莪州之加厘島,有学到了吗?

  8. 之前有去過在Gombak的原住民博物館,
    在半島好像有超過100多個不同的種族
    單單在Selangor就有6、7個不同的原住民了
    而且每個原住民的文化差異都不小,
    馬來西亞真的是文化非常多元的國家
    只希望大家會善於利用這些不同的文化智慧
