The Origin of Iban Adat.


Myth, by its nature, tells “how one state of affairs became another: how an unpeopled world became populated; how chaos became cosmos…” Victor Turner.

Through acts of creation, and out of the dissolution and reconstitution of society, myths reveal a sacred cosmos that both transcends, and at the same time sanctions the established moral and social order. Thus, myths are not only a guide to culture; we see how nature and human spirit shape a society.
