DBNA to intensify efforts to document traditional herbs and medicine in the Bidayuh community

A team from DBNA attended a seminar on the development and implementation of a national access and benefit sharing framework for traditional knowledge and genetic resources organised by Sarawak Biodiversity Centre at Jalan Puncak Borneo. It is important that the indigenous communities benefit from any initiative to exploit their traditional knowledge and genetic resources for commercial purposes. Many of the traditional knowledge and herbs and plants of the Bidayuh community are being documented by SBC, and many of these have potentials in the development of pharmaceutical and health care products. It is therefore important that the community documents its traditional knowledge, not only to preserve them for future generations, but also to protect them from being exploited by outsiders and businesses without benefiting the community. Paul Akiu who led the team at the seminar said DBNA would work with SBC and other authorities to document and protect traditional knowledge and other cultural resources of the community.

DBNA and UIAM on Intellectual discussion

A cordial discussion on Bidayuh intellectual properties was held with a group of professors from University Islam Antarabangsa Malaysia (UIAM) today at a local hotel in Kuching City.

Also present were two officers from the ICT Unit of the Chief Minister’s Department, Corelineson Nosin and Steward Sayong.

JAKOA visit to Kampung Skuduk and DBNA Headquarters

A team comprises 10 members of Jabatan Kemajuan Orang Asli (JAKOA) had a working visit to Sarawak, specifically to the Bidayuh area to learned about our success on documentation of the NCR land in which titles had been given to the land owners by the Land and Survey Department.

Their visit was organised by the Chief Minister Office to Kampung Skuduk, Siburan. They arrived at the village around 10.00 AM and were welcomed with Bidayuh tranditional music and dances performed by the troupes of Kampung Skuduk. Those receiving them were YB Datuk Roland Sagah Wee Inn, Deputy DUN speaker and ADUN N.17 Tarat, the President of DBNA Datu Ik Pahon Joyik, Temenggong Austin Dimin, Mr Micheal Dawi, Director in the Chief Minister Office, Ms Alicia Tay (Assistant Director of CMO), Mr Johan Achu Jupaw (Senior Accountant), Mr Zamahari Haji Saidi the acting Resident Officer of Kuching, Mr Wilson Spilak the SAO of Sub-district of Siburan, the village chief KK Silbey anak Nobek and many others.

The delegates from JAKOA were led by the Department Director Datuk Mohd Sani bin Mistam and his officers.

KK Silbey anak Nobek welcomed them to his village and briefed them on his village’s development and planning. He also briefed the delegates on the history of the village where the community of Kampung Skuduk was first moved to the lowland from Kampung Chupak. Kampung Skuduk was established in 1952 and ever since, paddy and rubbers have become the main source of income.

YB Datuk Roland Sagah Wee Inn also thanked the delegates for choosing Kampung Skuduk as the village to do their field study. In his speech, he mentioned about the fast development in Kampung Skuduk in addition to tourism spots like the cave and hot spring, which can be visited by tourists. The NCR land documentation project in Kampung Skuduk was not easy as there were many issues to settle, which delayed the project for a while.

Datu Ik Pahon gave brief presentation of the DBNA Land Documentation project to the delegates of JAKOA. The Land Documentation for Kampung Skuduk started way back in 2007 and on 12 Feb 2012, the village folks finally received their land titles from the Land and Survey Department of Sarawak. Kampung Skuduk was DBNA’s first pilot project for the Land Documentation. With the help of the Global Positioning System (GPS), the work became easier as the devices were connected directly to the satellite and the coordination can be saved in the devices for mapping to be done.

DBNA Land Documentation system helps Land and Survey Department to give land titles faster as most of the work have already been done by the village committees earlier. Most of the disputes are solved within the community itself.

Visit to DBNA Headquarters

From Kampung Skuduk, the delegates went to visit to DBNA Headquarters at Jalan Kumpang, and were further briefed on DBNA’s programs especially on the word list compilations, Multi Language Education (MLE) and the play schools which have been taught in few villages in their respective mother tongue.

While in DBNA the delegates were shown to a mini expo displayed and after which a briefing by Vice President Mr Chali Ungang on the DBNA on-going programs for the communities and also the high achievers Bidayuh in the federal cabinet and the state including Olympic bronze medalist Ms Pandelela Rinong.
