MERASEH

#40~365

Sungai Meraseh adalah salah satu anak Sungai Mahakam yang berada di Kecamatan Long Pahangai, Kabupaten Mahakam Ulu, Kalimantan Timur.

Berbeda dengan sungai Mahakam, air di sungai Meraseh cenderung jernih dengan pemandangan yang menyejukkan di sepanjang tepi sungai.

Sebuah lokasi yang disebut Sari oleh masyarakat Dayak Bahau Umaaq Suling menjadi salah satu tujuan kami saat trip ke Mahakam Ulu di paruh terakhir tahun 2016.

Seperti halnya hutan, sungai bagi Dayak pedalaman merupakan nadi kehidupan, tempat berbagai ritual keseharian dilakukan. Sungai disamping sebagai sumber utama air, juga menjadi akses utama bepergian bagi masyarakat Dayak yang bermukim di sepanjang 920 KM sungai Mahakam.

LONG EARS

telinga-panjang

#24~365

In the past, the tradition of elongating ears was not only done by women, but also men. In Dayak Kayaan, long ears for men shows the status of nobility. However, some inais (greeting for old women) in Bahau that we encountered, long earlobes also symbolizes owners’ beauty.

Longthened earlobes also become the identity of age. Therefore, there is a narrative saying that long time ago, hisangs (round earing hanging from the earlobes), are added by its owner as age increases. And it is a test, because time by time it is heavier. Imagine, the earlobes lengthend in such a way, as the number of hisang hanging.

Therefore, women who have long earlobes are regarded as women who have the patience and are able to pass through long-suffering. Because, almost all whose earlobes made long, are always accompanied by tattos whether on the hands or feet.
