Description: Kayans are known for their singing, dancing and merrymaking. They love to entertain and be entertained. After the borak (homemade fermented rice wine) starts to flow and the 'yakok kayan' (homemade Kayan cigars) is lit, the happy group featured here performs a musical comedy skit in the longhouse to entertain one another. Kayans are famous for their carving skills too. The 'hudo apah' (masks) the menfolk are wearing were carved from banana tree trunks by Wan Ajang.
