Watch the Gawai stories

Pemulai Aku #OurStories

Every year we celebrate the gift of life brought by the paddy seed. Legends and stories of the annual harvest have been passed down from generation to generation.

Once the storyteller passes on, so do these stories. How many have been lost? This year, we’re preserving the stories of our ancestors for a new generation to keep.

Scroll down and watch the stories that would have otherwise been lost with time.
