Ruby Red: Red Head gear


For the whole of the first week of June, there is great celebration. It is Gawai or the Harvest festival. When Sarawak was a British colony, this was the Queen's birthday.

Here are the Indigenous men of Sarawak in their traditional dress.

Some classy, beautiful suits and head garments. I don't think I have ever seen similar before.
As always, when proudly dressed, the people,- here the men,- will also behave like princes.
Pride and honor are in the air.
I wish you a happy celebration.

I need only come here, to learn something new and awe-inspiring. The traditional dress is interesting and wonderful to honor a celebration of harvest. Lovely.
