Dance Arts & Traditional Ceremonies

Coastal Culture Traditional Ceremonies
Animism (a belief towards the anchestor's spirits) is also found in the coastal area. The belief believed by the Bajau tribe (coastal) comes from the social life organization, which is called Melabuh traditional ceremony. Although this traditional ceremony in the coastal areas has different names and activities, the meaning is just the same; that is as a prayer for God to say thank and also to ask for a better live. Since this ceremony is based on the source of living and life itself, therefore the ceremony consists of the offerings (sesajian) offered for God. The peak of this ceremony is usually done by throwing away the offering to the sea.
