I know many of us were not invited to the New Development Concept for Longhouses seminar held recently and the next one is scheduled to be in Sibu on 19th-20th April.
We have made effort to reproduce the third paper of the seminar. You may download the Kertas Kerja 3 – Status Tanah, Urusniaga, Pengukuran dan Pengeluaran Surat Hakmilik Tanah, which has been getting interesting debate among my readers.
We still maintain our stand that the design for the new longhouse needs to be review inline with our tradition, customs and practices. We advise the designer to refer to the Majlis Adat Istiadat Sarawak for a better understanding of the Iban customs.
