Man of the River Bank- Tatana

Drama at the Dragon Inn

Costume drama at the KDCA during the Sabah Harvest Festival (Tadau Ka’amatan).

Tatana are natives of Borneo mostly residing in the town of Kuala Penyu (Turtle River Bank). They are in some ways related to the Kadazandusun of North Borneo.

The costume worn by the tribal looking gentleman on the left reminds me of Chinese costume dramas. Quite unnerving, isn’t it?

The gentleman was captured, action frozen, doing a tribal dance. Tribal drama at its best.
