Harvest Festival (Pesta Kaamatan) It is a festival to honouring the Rice Spirit - Bambaazon or Bambarayon - and to express gratitude for another bountiful year. The festival begins on the 1st of May at many district levels. The ritual and customs of the Harvest Festival is a tribal practice of Kadazandusun and also Murut people. The Bobohizan or Bobolian who are the High Priests or Priestesses (depending on the district/area undertaking the preservation) will conduct the ritual. In different districts, the priests or priestesses may be addressed to differently, for instance in Tambunan district they are known as Bobolian, in Tuaran as Tantagas and in Penampang as Bobohizan. Ancient folklore tells of the ultimate deed of Kinoingan or Minamagun - The Almighty God or Creator, who sacrificed his only beloved daughter, Huminodun so that his people would have food. Various parts of her body were planted from which plants grew. During the Magavau ceremony, the Bobohizan will select some stalks of rice that are left undistributed until the harvest is over. In the old days, this ceremony was often performed in freshly harvested fields during the first full moon after the harvest to invoke the rice spirit. The vital aspect of Magavau is the paraphernalia used to summon Bambaazon. The sacrament of Magavau may vary according to district practices but the ceremony always ends with food offerings to Bambaazon and merry making for the village folks. The language used by Bobohizan is archaic whose meanings have been buried in time and known only to the few remaining Bobohizan these days. The selection of the pageant queen, or "Unduk Ngadau," which literally translates as "Zenith of the Sun," is the highlight of the Harvest Festival. It originates conceptually from Huminodun's sacrifice. The maiden chosen should resemble Huminodun and represent all that is good in the beloved Huminodun.
