The Old Kayan Religion and the Bungan Religious Reform
This is a translation by Jerome Rousseau of the first book ever written by a Kayan, a member of a small Sarawak tribal group, in the Kayan language. The purpose of the book is to explain to the laity Adat Bungan, a reform of traditional Kayan religion that flourished in the 1940s and 1950s. The reforms aimed to remove many of the taboos and rituals of the old religion, Adat Dipui, which the reformers no longer thought to be relevant. The book contains the original Kayan version and its translation into English. 124 pages.
