Kota Kinabalu: Teachers at SK Bangkahak in Kota Belud are making efforts to elevate the status and preserve the cultural significance of Dusun Tindal's traditional garment known as Rinangkitan.

They have taken initiative to research about the garb and present the original garments worn by women in Bangkahak in the past during Karnival Bahasa Kadazandusun and Tinimungan Tradisi Bangkahak held in Kampung Bangkahak Lama, Kota Belud, on Friday.

Present was Assistant Minister of Tourism, Culture, and Environment-cum-Sabah Tourism Board chairman Datuk Joniston Bangkuai, said a statement.

The unveiling of 100-year old Rinangkitan outfits highlights the necessity of documenting and preserving the authenticity of the older forms of Dusun Tindal traditional attire.

According to the research conducted by the teachers, there is evidence to suggest that the garment has existed since 1920 and was worn by Bangkahak women.
