Genjep, Balian of Dayak Maanyan

Share this history on: Defri Werdiono and M Syaifullah 
For Maanyan Dayak communities in the border area of ​​South Kalimantan and Central Kalimantan, Genjep was one of a respected village shaman. In addition to conducting traditional rituals related to death Dayak Maanyan, he also tries to attract young people for traditional rituals remain sustainable.
If I die, do not know whether to be buried with traditional rituals aruh staring or not anymore. Whatever happens, I am still trying to maintain this tradition while capable, "said Genjep affirm his determination.
The Dayak Maanyan rather live among the local Tabalong District, East Barito Regency, and South Barito. In the community, Genjep familiarly called Mama Uci, referring to the name of her first child.
During this time he was one of the village shaman of the "little" women a respected figure Maanyan Dayak community, especially in the Village Warukin, District of Tanta, Tabalong regency, South Kalimantan.
He became the village shaman (female shaman), spiritual leaders Maanyan Dayak women who serve the demand led the local ceremonial rituals. Although most residents are Christian, Catholic, and Islam.
"Back then, the number balian lot. Now, shaman woman only a few people. In addition to its growing number of traditional rituals are rarely held, too many people do not want to be a shaman, "he said.
Since Sunday (11 / 7) then, with three purchases hamlet Genjep lead aruh ritual (ceremony) or aruh mambuntang staring at Warukin. Aruh staring is the ceremonial raising spirits from the grave to heaven. This death-related rituals held Luit Pardi family to his parents, Utau, who died 30 years ago.
The procession was believed to be how to put the spirits to "father" of the highest in the home. In the public trust Kaharingan adherents, the original religion of the Dayak community, parents or ancestors will give blessing to future generations who are still alive.
During the last aruh staring, about five days, almost all the responsibility Genjep procession. He is preparing a variety of offerings as an element of ritual, summoning and communicating with spirits, and lifted it to heaven. His job as mediator.
In addition to preparing the offerings in the hall (house on stilts), Genjep also led the process bamamang (cast a spell). He along with three other women do it with shaman ritual dances accompanied Dadas tinkling bangles, brass bracelets worn by the shaman.
They wear traditional clothes typical village shaman, in the form tapih bahalai, batik cloth wrapped around his chest. Then, on the back tucked into a keris. He also wore a headband.
"Anyone doing this ritual, I am accompanied by three other shaman. At least one of their young age, around 35-40 years. I hope that, by involving the village shaman who are young, we are able to maintain this ritual tradition, "said Genjep explain his efforts to preserve the tradition, although she admitted that a shaman is not easy.
Apart from having trained, numerous Maanyan Dayak ritual, a shaman also must master and memorize all the spells used. "All of that can not be learned through books because there is no book. Young Balian must learn to sit directly to the oldest village shaman, "he said.
The physical condition of a shaman also be prime because of traditional rituals that can last up to nine days continuously. That's not including preparation. When aruh staring held, practically Genjep could only sleep a few moments.
Expertise grandmother
Leading the traditional rituals performed Genjep since 1968. His expertise as a village shaman began when he was 12 years old. Currently sitting in fourth grade public school, he was asked to continue the expertise of his grandmother, Pembekal Lingut.
The grandmother, Pembekal Lingut, was one of the "clever" in Tamiang Fly. Genjep remember, one of the procession being undertaken to transfer knowledge is to bamandi-bath or shower cleanses the body.
After that, small Genjep required to memorize a variety of spells. Then, for about 22 years continuously Genjep follow his grandmother every time there staring aruh. After a 42-year-old, believed to lead the new Genjep aruh staring rituals.
"I was taken from school, I cried because it did not want to (become balian hamlet). Then the grandmother said, unfortunately it if no one is diutuskan be a shaman. What may make, eventually going well, "he said.
Lately Genjep share their knowledge to two young women. Genjep words, they themselves who volunteered to be shaman. So, what he got from his grandmother he was doing well to his student. They follow where it leads Genjep aruh staring rituals.
Increasingly rare
The times it took effect, including the inland communities of Kalimantan. From the observation Genjep, compared to first, the existence of village shaman lately increasingly rare. This condition is slightly different from the other shaman, like a shaman bawo, balian man whose numbers are relatively still insufficient.
Do not know what the cause, Genjep can not explain it. With a worried tone he expects the tradition of staring aruh increasingly threatened with extinction. Indeed, to perform ceremonies that required great expense, to reach tens of millions of dollars. In addition, some local residents have also been converted, and even this tradition they left behind.
In Genjep family, of seven children, no one is willing to follow in his footsteps, a village shaman. They chose to become a civil servant in the district government office, or working in coal mines operating in the region.
However, for Genjep, the condition does not make a broken spirit. He still pursue the task of the ancestors, as a village shaman. Although no longer young age, Genjep walked on, come one at a village on the border of the Dayak community Maanyan three provinces, namely South Kalimantan, Central Kalimantan and East Kalimantan.
He remains focused on its original purpose, namely to preserve the indigenous Dayak ritual Maanyan. Accompanied Dadas jingle bracelets on both hands, the old body remained supple Genjep bring sacred dance. He led the local Dayak people Maanyan day and night to honor his ancestors by aruh staring.

burung enggang_hornbills

classification : 

Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Aves Order: Coraciiformes Family: Bucerotidae Genus: Buceros Speciaes: Buceros rhinoceros

Hornbills (hornbill), or Buceros rhinoceros, a type of large bird body and a long beak. The males have red or orange eyes, and a white-eyed females. Length is 122 cm. Can live to 35 years. Can be found in Malaysia, Borneo, Sumatra and Sulawesi.
In the culture of Borneo, hornbills (interests) are the symbol of "The Natural" is kedewataan nature that is "masculine". In Kalimantan, hornbills magic is used as an emblem or symbol regional organizations such as the Sarawak State Secretary, Central Kalimantan, Symbol University of Gastric Mangkurat and so forth. Hornbills realized in the form of engravings on Dayak culture, whereas in the Banjar culture, hornbills carved in the form of disguised (didistilir) because the Banjar culture grown under the influence of Islamic religion, which bans carving animate beings.
Love and Loyalty ENGGANG

Also did you know that a hornbill bird faithful to a partner where male hornbills would never change her life partner. Please also note that when they raise their children then the males and females perform the role of each. At times these males will be in charge of looking for food in the form of fruits, lizards, bats, rats, snakes and various species of insects, while the females will be on duty to keep their children in the hive. This they will do during their child can not fly.
It is extraordinary is not it? As the son of Borneo, I am very grateful to the Lord (Jubata) who has created this bird and put them in one park in the world, namely "Borneo Island." Through these birds in fact we can learn about the value of wisdom and loyalty. Undeniable since millions of years ago animals such as hornbills has been active in forest conservation. With their main meal in the form of grain they had been instrumental in spreading the seeds of plants and trees that make this forest remain sustainable. Actually no we (humans) actually realize they also have helped keep this earth to stay comfortable place to live.
Through this bird that he said we should also represents the most sensible thing would look in the mirror and dare to berintropeksi about our daily lives. About love and loyalty, whether we are faithful like hornbills? The relationship between human beings we sometimes just can not afford to love sincerely let alone to be faithful. A married couple can only divorce because of unfaithfulness. Look at the example of our celebrity couples marriage broken by divorce. When they asked about it finally the answer is usually like this "Well, .. this may be the will of those above. Answers like this will usually be thrown when there is no more good answers to convince the public that what became their decision was correct. Weird is not it? We humans find it easier to blame God when we fail, which in this case failed to maintain the "love" which is an incredible gift.
Of course, love and loyalty is not merely have regarding human relationships. Humans as the dominant variable in the sustainability of life on this earth to realize that he should have done a great determine the fate of the planet. In conditions like this now when the earth is increasingly dying of global warming, we as humans must humbly admit in the face of Nature that so far we have been wrong. Human beings have become the destroyer was the number 1 (one) on this earth.
Then where lies the fault us for this? Back on the lives of hornbills, they have shown real love and loyalty according to their degree as an animal. Thus we should also because we can give more love to the earth. Love of nature can be realized with the maintenance and management of natural resources wisely and discreetly, not like all this time, we are even more greedy than animals. Exploitation without limit has caused the planet sick. Various kinds of natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, landslides, and forest fires come alternately. Should a disaster like that we are increasingly aware that nature also has a temper. When nature is too hurt and betrayed and he will be able to easily eliminate human life. Likewise, loyalty, our loyalty to the planet we can make happen with this natural preserve continuously without any time limit such as hornbills who never complained.

Dayak Punan Merah Feet: Between There and Gone

In the upper Barito there are three villages that are considered as the Dayak Punan settlements, namely Karamu tumbles, tumbles Tunjang, and tumbles Topus. The third resident of this village say they are descendants of the Punan. Punan are magical, powerful man in the jungle. They can relieve themselves only by hiding behind a leaf. Difficult to follow in his footsteps. They walk sideways and very fast. Their bodies are light because they do not eat salt.
However, if you ask them about Ot Siau or Red Legged Punan, they themselves say is never seen nor met. But they believe that the Punan Red Legged do exist, with unique characteristics, namely red hands and feet like the feet of birds Siau.
Residents of three villages that make the two categories of Punan. First, "Punan Government", the Punan people who are willing to live-settled in the village. Second, Siau Punan living in caves and wander in the jungle. People Karamu, Tunjang, and Topus claim to be "Punan Stay", and brothers with whom believed Siau Punan living in the Upper River borax.
Punan the "original", according to these people, are those who live in the jungle and the caves are dark. Feet and hands stained red with leaves saronang or jarenang. Their whole bodies were covered with a fungus that contain phosphorus so that it looks light in the darkness.
In the case of hunting, killing abstinence Poenan Siau unsuspecting animal. If met with a busy deer eat the foliage, he clapped his hands loudly to alert their presence.
When the deer was startled and ran away, did he chase. They are a true hunter armed with chopsticks, and never conquered by stalking prey silently.
Although able to speak a lot, none of the inhabitants of three villages had never met directly with the Punan Siau. Several other parents said he has seen only footprints, but never saw the man. According to them, it happens because the Punan Siau has the word reverie, the magic spell to remove himself behind a leaf.
Punan is a collection of amazing stories. In the local treasures of Borneo, Punan people are always portrayed as brave and skilled hunting. They were viewed as supernatural high-powered people. They can disappear and have a tajam.Mereka olfactory also seen as a special human forest dwellers. Punan also have knowledge of effective drugs, from roots and leaves of forest timber. That said, if the Punan women give birth, they will be cured in one day.
Punan Tombs

In the village of Fall Topus there is no more a pure Punan. It was just a mixture between Punan and the Noon-Joyless, Bahau, Benuaq, and Ot Danum or Kahayan. Toras, Potogor, and Batang Pantar of which there are several in the village showed that in their death rituals tend to be as the Ot Danum or Siang Joyless.
They identified themselves as descendants of the Punan in a pile of large stones by the local people called the Stone Awu-Balang. In one alcove seemed to lay the stone hill two skulls and human bones.
According to them, skull and bones belonged to two prominent Punan named Awu and Balang. Approaching death, they mandated that his bones should not be buried in the ground, but placed in a stone niche, like the Punan who dwells in a stone cave.
For the Fall Topus, Awu-Balang Stone is not just a cemetery, but it is a monument to the origins of yourself because there are indications that their ancestor indeed the Punan.
Knowledge of the Punan not just monopoly anthropologist. Dayak people is also very active in building their self identity. As an internal agent, they actively construct themselves. At Karamu tumbles, tumbles Tujang, and tumbles Topus, they emphatically said "We are not the Punan Habongkot, not Punan Kareho, and also not the Punan Siau. We are the Punan Joyless. "
Nearly a century ago, Carl Lumholtz, a Norwegian explorer, has conducted expeditions Barito-Muller-Mahakam (1915-1916). River upstream of Busang he met with the Punan Panyawung.

But now, at the beginning of the 21st century, we visited kalolah Joyless River upstream, we will meet with new Punan, the Punan Joyless, Punan who are not original anymore. So, Punan exists and no.

Lion King Bansa; Symbol modesty Dayak people

King synonymous with power (the power) and wealth. Not so with the king Dayak: without the power and wealth. There are currently no setitikpun listed in Indonesia's history books. Even more tragic, let alone outsiders, people Dayakpun many do not know if they have a king. Sekitarnyapun Villagers do not know whether the king of them still exist. Conversely, some Dayak people from outside the district Ketapang (West Kalimantan) and a small Dayak Sarawak (Malaysia) until now come to give tribute and still trust and respect him as a king, especially those familiar with the world kebathinan / supernatural.
Indeed, if the first time we meet will be surprised at the figure of a king Hulu Aik. Pembawaannya calm, quiet. If the talk and make decisions as the king appeared before his charisma. Very understated, simple, honest and candid. He is the Lion King Bansa (27 th), heir to the throne of the King of Upper-6 Aik; only King Dayak in Indonesia.
King Hulu Ai is the name for the leader of Hulu Aik Kingdom. Hulu Aik Kingdom beginning in the region and the Cape Porikng Sembore Pancur, hicks Krio River (now signed Menyumbung Village, Kec. Sandai, Kab. Ketapang, West Kalimantan), circa 1700s. Pang first leader Carve professor vibration. He was replaced Bihukng Tiung. Since this is the area Pancur Sembore Bihukng Cape Porikng-called Hulu Aik Kingdom. Bihukng as king I. Bihukng replaced Bansa Starch (II), Ira Bansa (III), Chief Guava (IV), Duck (Bansa Lion King's father, the king of the 5th). And King Lion Hulu Aik VI is Bansa. Since there is no clear wilyah power, center of the kingdom Hulu Aik move followed the king who in the watershed Krio.
Materially Bansa Lion King family life is very simple, even the poor can be said. ? Palace? Her (rumah-red.) located in remote areas far inland, in the village Sengkuang, Menyumbung Village, Kec. Sandai, Ketapang (Kalbar). From Pontianak to Ketapang, and from the district Ketapang 6 hour speed boat ride, followed by a small boat speed of about 4 hours 15 PK lunged forth Krio river rapids.
His house is 8 X 7 meter3, floored and walled board, wood shingle roof. Stairs from a metal timber that was given books. No one kursipun in the living room. Guests sit on floor mats repose. ? This is the home of government, "he said. As King Hulu Aik he should not be hard work, making it impossible to have a home. First rakyatnyalah who made house. In one room stored Hulu Aik Kingdom sacred heritage, namely the People Tungkat Koling Bosi; intangible a keris from the yellow metal.
For the Lions Bansa, predicate King Hulu Aik is a very heavy duty. ? Actually I accept this position is very heavy. But because it was descent, should not be rejected. Maybe this is the course of my life? he said resignedly.
Catholic Religion dianutnya since kecilpun forced to be abandoned after crowned as King Hulu Aik VI. His wife, Anastasia Bijan (33 th), also had to leave the Catholic religion. He and his wife returned to the trust to Duwata (God-Krio Dayak) according to the Krio Dayak people there. While Edi Kurniawan, his son, still be Catholic.
The main obligations of each of King Hulu Aik implement Meruba customary every year. That is customary to bathe / wash Bosi Koling Tungkat People (meaning the People's Iron Sustainer Yellow-red). Kris intangible sacred objects made of yellow metal, which is a human sumberkehidupan by Krio Dayak people. Sacred objects that should be maintained of the Kings Hulu Aik. Because if it runs out, then the world will end.
Initially Bosi Koling Tungkat his People's length about 20 cm. But now according to RajaSinga Bansa live 5 cm. ? Keris was getting smaller year because a lot of mistakes made by the community, "said King Lion Bansa.
In order for these sacred items are not exhausted, then every year should be implemented custom Meruba. But custom is not solely Meruba King Hulu Aik wash Bosi Koling Tungkat People, but also knows what will happen in the future.
As customary Meruba implemented in 1997 within the chest where the People Tungkat Koling Bosi, there is dry sand. That means, of this nature will be droughts and all living things will be trouble. Incidentally atai not, it turns out the 1997 Elnino cause dryness.
When Meruba 1998, in the coffin there is mud and water. While Bosi Koling tungkat people wrapped in yellow cloth seven coils were also hot. This means that the world situation full of tension, muddy and dirty like mud, and will be the rainy season. Until kinipun Krio Dayak people believe there is still very nature of customary Meruba omen. The farmers are very interested to know the natural conditions.
During the wash kris with coconut oil, the King was not allowed to see, only feel taking out the dirt on the coffin. If visible, then slowly but surely going to be blind. When appointed to the first and last time King Hulu Aik see the keris, his eyes slowly but surely going blind. Because usually only see with one eye, the hallmark of King Hulu Aik is the blind eye the next.
King Hulu Aik mandatory farming. In addition to the fields is the source and Dayak cultural center, just farm life activities that do not depend on others. Results fields can be directly enjoyed by farmers. If other jobs, such as rubber tapping, must first be sold to someone else. Getting the reward of other people are not permissible for a King Hulu Aik.
When Hulu Aik crowned as king of the 6th, he realized that the provision of science as the king is not given the complexity of human problems today. He only had time to finish secondary school. ? I diligently read the books sent to the friends from Pontianak to add insight, "he said.
Hope Bansa Lion King now concentrated on her only child, Elius Edi Kurniawan (7 th) is now sitting in class 2 SDN Sengkuang, Kec. Sandai (Ketapang-Kalbar). He was the candidate of King Hulu Aik VII. "If you can, Eddie is not only predicated King Hulu Aik, but also educated adequate? Please Lion Bansa resignation. Even the education her son threatened to fail because of difficulties in cost. He realized, as king, as a role model citizens, sued to-date. On the other hand, after becoming king of his worldly activity will be greatly reduced, including work, and many restrictions (Tabo).
King Hulu Aik is not a king who has the power in his realm definitif.Dulu include Domong Nine Page Ten. This area now includes Ketapang district, some Kab. Sanggau, and a small portion of the Dayaks in Sarawak (Malaysia). First, they who live the King Hulu Aik. King Hulu Aik as a unifier and intermediaries they beg for help to God, since the king maintains Bosi Koling Tungkat People.
King Hulu Aik power faded when the Dutch colonizers arrived. With the political divide et impera, Dayak and Malay diadudomba. According to Mill Rockaert, historians from Belgium, the Netherlands controlled the Dayaks to make the Malay group as his proxy, making it weakens the existence of King Hulu Aik.
After the occupation ended, the natural fate of King Hulu Aik independence even hardly a place in the country of Indonesia. With berbagaiteknik, submission model and a new style of cultural colonialism which wrapped construction, modernization of independent Indonesia for 53 years, slowly but surely now the King of Upper Aik hardly exist anymore.
? We are not unwilling to admit, upholds the existence of King Hulu Aik. But then people do not ever know because it is made in such a way so as not to know the King Hulu Aik, "said Unus (65 years), head of the indigenous Dayak and Patinggi Kayong Aris, head of the indigenous Dayak Simpang.
The emergence of the first Lion King Bansa to the public when the execution of customary starting Ketapang reinforcements to prevent violence in mid-July 1998, very proud of the Dayak. They now know have a king. Not the king as a ruler, have the power, but the king as a unifying symbol of the Dayaks to build the Republic of Indonesia.
? King Hulu Aik is a symbol of marginalization Dayak people in this Republic. So they appear to the public and known to the public, hopefully inspiring the Dayak to be the subject of development, "said S. Djuweng, Director of the Institute Dayakologi (Pontianak).
King Hulu Aik is not the king as usual. Maybe He is the king remarkable for its simplicity and grandeur of the principle of his life. He is a symbol of simplicity, modesty Dayak man who from the past until now marginalized in their own homeland.
He used to be respected, a unifier. Now not anymore. According to experts about the Dayak, colonialism, development and modernization has been slowly but certainly largely eliminate the existence of King Hulu Aik. ? The Dayak were a majority in number, but a minority in the role, "said Mill Rockaert (1996). Worse yet, "among the Dayak community had existed and gone," said GP. Djaoeng, Dayak leaders in Pontianak is also a former member of the Assembly from 1993 to 1998.
Perhaps the lesson 53 years of nation and state in Indonesia with the various consequences are now able to change the views of officials in Jakarta about the concept of "independence" required of indigenous peoples in various parts of the archipelago, including the Dayak. That is independent to take care of their own region in the context of a united Indonesia. ***
