The dominant Chinese ethnic group in Borneo are the Hakka, who first settled in what is now the Indonesian part of the island in the 18th century and later migrated to Rajah Brooke's Sarawak. In this book, the author explains the spirit medium tradition and current practices of the descendants of the original settlers, mainly in West Kalimantan, but also amongst their cousins in Sarawak. The main festival for the spirit mediums, Cap Goh Meh, the last night of Chinese New Year, is explained in some detail with many colour photographs. 160 pages.
