Synopsis

This work is an attempt to preserve the beliefs of the Kadazan People of Sabah, on how the world and everything in it were created according to the earliest media available to them – The Inaits. Kinoingan chanted the mantras to the first Bobohizan, who in turn passed it down in similar way, to the others – over the centuries. The Bobohizans (Kadazan Priestess) cannot read nor write but they have an unsual gift – they can memorise a few day long mantras. They were just the people who could do that and today, Kadazan Mythology is an attempt; the first of its kind to have put that in a Book Form – with the hope it can sustain along the ages, ahead. It is also attached to the heart of the Author that may this Literature be found helpful to those who loves mythology and see if this can be made into a Kadazan Literature, of all time?
