The Bidayuh Priests

The Bidayuh Priests

The priests will do the Adat Gawea while the priestesses will do the ADAT BOLIH. Together they can do the Annual festival called Gawea Sowa which is actually an anual Thanks Giving celebration for a successful Harvesting season in the past.

However to-day Gawea Sowa is performed to make the public Holidays of June 1st and 2nd, the days where families can get together for a public Holidays.

In many villages, this season becomes become the days to celebrate and enjoy with no Adat involved except for cultural performances reminiscent of the past.
