2011 Gawai Dayak Queen Mother

The gaiety and uniqueness of the 2011 Gawai Dayak celebration in Engkilili was further enhanced with the hosting of the 2011 Gawai Dayak Queen Mother competition in last May 2011. Held at Lubok Antu/Engkilili District Council Community Hall, the competition was to replace the Gawai Dayak Kumang Pekit event typically held during the Gawai celebration. Diana anak Rejab was crowned as the 2011 Gawai Dayak Queen Mother held in conjunction with the Pre-Gawai Merarau Council Ceremony organised by the Women and Youth Wings of Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu Party (PBB) Engkilili branch. The runner-up was Rundai anak Ugap while Shirly Garu took the third spot.

Indirectly, the presence of visitors from different ethics and races reflected the unity and understanding of the plural society in the state. In fact, the programme was able to promote Sarawak to the local and foreign tourists which generated revenue for the state. The programme was launched by YB Dato Sri Douglas Uggah anak Embas, Minister of Natural Resources and Environment. Also present were YB William Nyalau Badak, Lubok Antu Member of Parliament, and State Assemblyman, YB Dr Johnnical Rayong anak Ngipa. A karaoke competition had further enlivened the programme. The winner was Diah anak Gundol followed by Shirly Garu and Rano anak Ansang, in the second and third place respectively. (Last Update: 9 June 2011)
