SEJARAH PENEMPATAN KAMPUNG

Nama kampung Long Tanid ini diambil sempena dengan sebatang anak sungai yang mengalir dari puncak Gunung Buduk Balud ke Sungai Trusan yang berdekatan dengan hilir tapak lapangan kapal terbang di Long Semadoh.

Penempatan awal tapak asal atau asli kampung Long Tanid ialah di ‘Ruma Tican Nanud’ yang bermaksud ‘Rumah yang ditinggalkan kerana banjir’. Penduduk pertama kampung Long Tanid semasa di ‘Ruma Tican Nanud’ ialah : Ganang Liau, Ukab Liau, Baru liun, Achang Balang, Langub Pengiran, Pur Tuie, Sakai Luun dan Sigar Lalung. Oleh kerana kampung mereka selalu banjir maka mereka pun berpindah ke ‘Pun Apir’, iaitu berdekatan dengan jambatan gantung yang menyeberangi sungai Trusan menghala ke lapangan padang kapal terbang.

Keluarga besar semasa di’Pun Apir’ ialah Ganang Liau, Ukab Liau, Baru Liun, Achang Balang, Pur Tuie, Sigar Lalung, Riong Lalung dan Lakai Balang.Sementara Langub Pengiran berpindah ke ‘Bang Menangang’ dekat dengan kampung Long Semadoh Naseb dan Sakai Luun pula ke Long Beluyu. Mereka berkampung di’Pun Apir’ selama lebih kurang 5 tahun, sebelum berpindah ke tapak kampung yang ada sekarang ini.

Tapak kampung yang ada sekarang ini mula-mula diterokai oleh Sinawat Tadem dan menantunya Berauk Taie. Pada masa itu, tempat ini adalah hutan belukar. Mereka telah membina sebuah ‘Barar'(Pondok kecil) ditapak rumah mendiang Lizeh Sigar yang ada sekarang ini. Sekitar tahun 1959, Penduduk kampung ‘Pun Apir’ bergabung dengan keluarga Sinawat Tadem dan menantunya Berauk Tai. keluarga Buayeh Tadem juga berpindah dari kampung Long Beluyu menyertai kelompok ini.

Gabungan antara Sinawat Tadem, Buayeh Tadem, Baru Liun, Ganang Liau, Ukab Liau, Pur Tuie, Sigar Lalung, Riong Lalung dan Achang Balang telah membina sederet rumah panjang. Tapak rumah mereka pada masa itu adalah sama tempat saat ini, iaitu dari tapak rumah Balang Sigar sampai rumah Dari Agung yang ada pada saat ini.

Dalam tempoh berdekatan, Besar Paru, Rugu Batun juga telah berhijrah dari kampung Long Beluyu dan Tebari Balang berhijrah dari kampung Long Kerabangan. Mereka bergabung membina sederet rumah panjang yang berasingan. Seterusnya, Padan Batun dan Taie Batun juga berhijrah dari Indonesia membina rumah mereka di kampung ini.

Nama-nama inilah yang telah memulakan penempatan tapak kampung dan terlibat dalam sejarah penempatan tapak asal kampung Long Tanid yang ada sekarang ini. Jasa mereka ini akan dikenang oleh seluruh warga kampung Long Tanid.

Ketua Kampung Long Tanid yang pertama ialah Ganang Liau yang juga merangkap Penghulu bagi seluruh kawasan Trusan Ulu. Beliau diganti oleh Baru Liun dan timbalannya pada masa itu ialah Sakai Ukab. Selepas Baru Liun bersara, Padan Ukab pula menjadi ketua kampung sehingga kesaat ini.

SEJARAH GEREJA

Sejarah Gereja Sidang Injil Borneo (SIB) bermula pada bulan oktober 1928, dimana 3 mubaligh Kristen warga Australia telah mula belayar ke kepulauan Borneo dan sampai sebulan kemudian, serta mulakan pelayanan Borneo Evangelical Mission (BEM). Mereka ini adalah; Hudson Southwell (Pndeta Padan @ Tuan Tapu), Frank Davidson (Tuan Lisin) dan Carey Tolly.

Bagi masyarakat Lun Bawang pula, Alan Beltcher (Pendeta Meripa) dan Madge Hill (Pendeta Ganit) juga warga Australia amat popular kerana telah menetap bersama masyarakat Lun Bawang di Kampung Long Semadoh A, serta telah menterjemah Alkitab ke bahasa Lun Bawang (Alkitab Bala Luk Do).

Bagi ahli Gereja Sidang Injil Borneo secara umum, nama mubaligh Kristen seperti; Hudson Southwell (Pendeta Padan @ Tuan Tapu), Frank Davidson (Tuan Lisin), Enid Davidson(Pendeta Litad), Winsome Southwell (Pendeta Gadung), Alan Beltcher (Pendeta Meripa), Madge Hill (Pendeta Ganit), Cain Copper (Pendeta Mutang), Bruce Morton (Pendeta Panai), Alf Thorrat (Pendeta Balang), Joan Copper (Pendeta Supang), Trevor White (Pendeta Asang, Bill Hawes (Pendeta Kawas), Bryan Mukem (Pendeta Mitun), Bob Burton (Pendeta Gaing), Bill Lees (Pendeta Gisar), Kith Napper (Pendeta Lasan), D.Robinson (Pendeta Riung), Winston Usher (Pendeta Kalang), Dennis Barry (Pendeta Paren), Keith (Pendeta Lian), Ray Cunningham (Pendeta Sigar), Evelyn Cunninghan (Pendeta Tunung). Mereka ini adalah antara mubaligh Kristen yang telah berjasa dalam menyebarkan ajaran Kristen dikalangan penduduk kepulauan Borneo khasnya bagi kaum Lun Bawang.

Penduduk Kampung Long Tanid mula menganut agama Kristen sekitar tahun 1930an-1940an. Pusat pengajaran agama Kristian pada awalnya adalah di kampung Long Beluyu yang menjadi ‘kota Yerusalem’ bagi Daerah Trusan Hulu. Pada masa itu penduduk sekitaran kawasan Long Semadoh datang ke kampung Long Beluyu untuk mempelajari ajaran Kristian.

Sekitar tahun 1965, penduduk kampung Long Tanid mula membangun bangunan sebuah Gereja yang kecil. Gembala Sigar Lupung dan keluarganya adalah Gembala pertama bagi Gereja Sidang Injil Borneo Long Tanid.

Hidden gems of Long Tanid

by Joanna Yap, reporters@theborneopost.com. Posted on September 21, 2014, Sunday

THE monotony of long-distance travel was beginning to numb our minds and weigh heavy on our eyelids as our Isuzu pickup stoically rumbled along the rough gravel and dirt road that wound its way up the undulating landscape of Long Semadoh in rural Lawas District.

We were about three hours drive from Lawas town, on our way to the Lun Bawang village of Kampung Long Tanid, one of 11 villages situated in Long Semadoh just before Ba Kelalan.

As our trusty ride crested the hilltop, the sparse wall of shrubbery that lined the road parted to reveal emerald green rice fields, bordered by mist-crowned mountain forests that marked a beautiful contrast to the crystal blue skies overhead. Sitting serenely in the centre of the patchwork of fields was our destination.

“This view is what Long Tanid is known for. Many people stop at this spot to take photos of the rice fields and mountains,” said our driver, local resident and homestay coordinator Balan Berauk, as he slowed the Isuzu down to allow us to soak up the postcard-perfect landscape.

Compared with Bario and Ba Kelalan, the highlands of Lawas tend to not feature as much in the travel plans of tourists and visitors passing through the northern regions of Sarawak — which is a shame as they have much to offer.

Life here harks back to simplier and kinder times where everyone seems to know everyone else on a first name basis. Being a good neighbour is a way of life.

Hospitality is not just reserved for blood relations as the local Lun Bawangs tend to pride themselves on being warm and generous hosts. It’s not uncommon for anyone who drops by for a visit to be invited to stay for a meal.

The landscape is still scarcely touched by the visceral scars of logging and oil palm plantations, in turn, supporting a wide range of wildlife and biodiversity and acting as water catchment areas for the many clear rivers and streams that cascade down the hills.

“What’s so special?” some may ask.

After all, it could be argued these things can easily be found elsewhere in the state without having to travel as far inland as Long Semadoh, where modern conveniences like mobile telephone and Internet communications are practically non-existent and most locals still rely on generators and micro-hydro dams for electricity.

But take a closer look, and you might be very surprised at what you may discover hiding in plain sight.

Local ingenuity

First-time visitors to Long Tanid may find themselves doing double takes when they see the European-style houses dotted throughout the village. In fact, a few of those houses would not look out of place on the slopes of the Swiss Alps.

Amidst the green grass fields, grazing buffaloes and wooden houses with the traditional roofs in the shape of a wooden mortar used to separate rice grains from their husks, one can find brick houses with French-style windows, plastered ceilings and solid hardwood doors.

According to Balan, this unique situation came about when one of the village’s sons – a lawyer who lived in Lawas – built a house there that incorporated a European style design.

It didn’t take long for the idea to catch on in Long Tanid and other residents began following suit. This was also helped by the fact that a number of the locals are skilled carpenters and construction workers.

Many of the designs were inspired by pictures, published in a particular home magazine and those found on the Internet. However, the westernization is limited mostly to outside appearances, Balan shared, adding that the insides of houses tend to follow local conventions.

“More people are building new homes that follow this style but we still have a lot of houses that follow the normal styles. Other villages are also starting to copy the designs but Long Tanid was the first to do so,” he said.

The Borneo Evangelical Mission church at Long Tanid was one of the first buildings in the village to adopt a western-inspired design with a low spire, large windows and distinct wood panelling, according to Balan.

The homes and church are a testament to local creativity and ingenuity, made all the more extraordinary when one considers the relative isolation of the village and the fact that there is no telephone reception here and electricity is only possible with the aid of invidually owned diesel generators and a nearby micro-dam.

Ties to the past

Although the outside world is slowly making its way into Long Tanid, many reminders of the local people’s rich heritage and traditions still exist but a number of them are no longer being practised.

Udang Ukab and Kapit Barok are the only two remaining people in Long Tanid to bear unique tattoos called arit belipid which have a twisting design, usually on the inside of the forearms and which carry significant meaning in their Lun Bawang community.

Udang, a lovely lady with a sweet smile who laughingly refused to disclose her age, said she got the tattoos in her late teens.

“It wasn’t a compulsory practice. It depended on the individual,” she shared in Lun Bawang, speaking through Balan who acted as a translator.

This type of tattoo was only reserved for the women, but Udang says she is not sure why it was so.

“It would normally cost one tajau (a large jar prized among Sarawakian native communities) to get the tattoo artist to come to tattoo both arms but I got mine at no cost as the tattoo artist was visiting at that time,” she remembers.

“He started tattooing in the morning and did not stop until the tattoo was finished hours later. I did not feel any pain although my arms become swollen,” Udang said, adding that she also did it just for fun.

The ink used in the tattoo was derived from the smoke of a particular type of resin as it was burnt. It was believed the tattoo would help to light the way like a torchlight into the afterlife when the owner passed away.

Kapit, distantly related to Udang through marriage, also got her tattoos when she was in her teens but for a different reason — Lun Bawang maidens who had these tattoos were seen as more attractive and could command higher marriage dowries.

“I followed in the traditions of my mother and grandmother who also had these tattoos. My mother’s  were different though with more straight lines while my grandmother was more heavily tattooed than both of us,” she shared, with Balan acting as translator.

Her tattoos are different in design compared to Udang’s as they were done by different tattoo masters.

“I didn’t feel scared but getting tattooed was very painful. I remember the blood coming out. I didn’t encourage my children and grandchildren to follow what I did,” said Kapit who told thesundaypost she was born in 1916.

Udang and Kapit are all too aware they are the only ones of their generation left who have these unique tattoos.

“Everyone of my age (who has these tattoos) has passed away. My daughters and granddaughters do not have them,” said Udang who still has a sharp memory and an almost fully-black head of hair despite getting on in years.

    Long Tanid was also a place, a beautiful village that I have trodded a few years ago. I spent some wonderful time there and get to know some families and friends. Those pictures are just wonderful, still fresh in my mind when I walked on foot from Lg. Tanid all the way to Lg. Semadoh Rayeh (I hope I am correct), walking on the old airport track. Terima kasih Tuhan atas kebaikan dan pimpinan mu kepada anak-anakMu di kampung ini. Tuhan berkati.
