The following is the full story - boleh dipercayai ada research foundation - LAPAS NI JAN GADUH2 origin KDM!

The designation is officially recognised as the result of political machinations, specifically as a resolution of the supposedly non-political 5th Kadazan Cultural Association (KCA) Delegates Conference held between November 4 and November 5, 1989 (KCA was later renamed to KDCA - Kadazan-Dusun Cultural Association [1]). During the conference, it was decided that this was the best alternative approach to resolve the "Kadazan" or "Dusun" identity crisis that had crippled and impeded the growth and development of the Kadazan-Dusun multi-ethnic community socio-culturally, economically and politically—ever since Kadazanism versus Dusunism sentiments were politicised in the early 1960's.

This was the basis that led to the United Sabah Dusun Association (USDA) and the Kadazandusun Cultural Association (KDCA) to resolve that the Language to be taught in Schools as Pupils' Own Language (POL) shall be known as the Kadazandusun Language based mainly on the Bundu-Liwan dialect and to be enriched by the other Kadazandusun dialects. In Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS), a Kadazandusun Chair has been established to undertake deeper research and documentation of the Kadazandusun's heritage and cultures. The University also offers the Kadazandusun language as an elective language subject, and it is quite popular among foreign students.

Kadazans and Dusuns share the same language and culture, albeit with differences in dialect. Many consider the major difference between the two ethnic groups to be their traditional geographical influences. Kadazans are mainly inhabitants of the flat valley deltas, conducive to paddy field farming, while Dusuns are traditionally inhabitants of the hilly and mountainous regions common to the interior of Sabah. It has been theorized that the name is actually just 'Dusun', not Kadazan Dusun. The word 'Kadazan' came from the word 'Kedai', a word from the Dusun tongue which means 'shop'. The original Dusun people called the Dusuns who live in the cities, where there are lots of shops as Kekedaian or Dusun who live in the city. Conversely, the City Dusun cannot pronounce the letter 'I' properly, they pronounce the 'Kekedaian' as 'Kekedazan'.

However an article written by Richard Tunggolou [2] on this matter may shed some light. According to Mr. Tunggolou, most of the explanations of the meanings and origins of the word ‘Kadazan’ assumed that the word was of recent origin, specifically in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. He says that some people have theorized that the term originates from the word ‘kakadazan’ (towns) or ‘kedai’ (shops), and from the claim that Kadazan politicians such as the late Datuk Peter J. Mojuntin coined the term. In fact, the word ‘Kadazan’ is not of recent origin. There was evidence that the term has been used long before the 1950s. Owen Rutter, in his book, “The Pagans Of North Borneo”, published in 1929, wrote: “The Dusun usually describes himself generically as a tulun tindal (landsman) or, on the West Coast, particularly at Papar, as a Kadazan.” (page 31). Owen Rutter worked in Sabah for five years as District Officer in all five residencies and left Sabah with the onset of the First World War. This means that he started working in Sabah from 1910 and left Sabah in 1914. We can therefore safely say that the word ‘Kadazan’ was already in existence before any towns or shops were built in the Penampang district and that Kadazan politicians did not invent the word in the late fifties and early sixties. Thus, the most likely explanation for the term ‘Kadazan’ is that it means ‘the people of Papar’ only and not Penampang people. Certainly there was a term specific for the 'Penampang' people. During the early 1970's the old people of Tambunan used to call the Penampang people as the "Tangara"; so since the Papar local termed themselves "Kadazan" then the Penampang people are best called as "Tangara".

kenapa mahu ada perbezaan kadazan & dusun

Postby tunturukeningau » Mon Oct 13, 2008 12:38 pm

saya pernah ada pengalaman seorang kawan kadazan yang tidak mahu dusun & kadazan itu sama, waktu itu kami menghadiri kursus yang sama di K.L bila penceramah tu tanya "ada sesiapa berasal dari sabah?" saya dan kwn kadazan itu mengangkat tangan sama2..then, penceramah itu pun tanya bangsa kami...kwn saya mamberitahu dia adalah kadazan dan saya memberitahu saya adalah dusun...penceramah kemudiannya bertanya kepada kwn saya itu..kamu memang kadazan-kadazan ke @ kadazan-dusun? kwn saya itu terus menjawab"kadazan-kadazan.." saya bertanya padanya kemudian apa beza nya kadazan & dusun , tapi dia tdak dapat memberi jwbn yang tepat hanya menyatakan yg kadazan standard tinngi sikit dari dusun..waa..hanya kerana standad maka harus di beza2 kan akar yang satu...sebagai satu suku bangsa saya mengharapkan agar orang KD ini faham akan kedudukan KD itu sendiri..saya sangat berbangga yg saya adlah dusun yang lahir di kg.penagatan keningau..saya tidak malu mengaku yang saya berbangsa dusun, malah biarpun saya bekerja di K.L bilamana orang bertanya bangsa saya, saya akan selalu berkata saya adalah dusun & bukan melayu..sebab saya berbangga yg saya ini adalah aborigin sabah..dan saya pasti akan lebih berbangga dengan itu...kepada kaum KD, apalah ada pada perkataan kadazan mahupun dusun itu sendiri...inilah sebabnya bangsa kita tidak bersatu hati dan mundur kerana kita sendiri mencari perbezaan...seharusnya sebagai bangsa terbesar kita selayaknya menjadi bangsa yang terkuat...tapi..sekuat manakah bangsa kita di sabah?

Yg penting kita tahu yg Kadazan itu asalnya bukan bangsa tetapi perkataan terhasil dari word kaum Dusun yg duduk di bandar - lidah karas bah "kakadaian pun jadi kakadazan" ;-)

In my opinion, a Dusun word was created by the British but borrowed from a malay language meaning to a people from a land of village as an identification to all the local dusun communities as one identity in North Borneo that time. The dusun never knew they were a dusun until they are being told to be called as one. Kadazan is part of the dusun communities. The word kadazan was from the kadazan themselve and not a borrowed one. Tun Fuad however used "kadazan" as a representation, an identification and foundation of all the dusun communities in sabah to be as one community. But this made an uneasiness to many other dusun communities because they felt they are not really represented other then their unique background. Pairin decided to create a kadazandusun in order to eliminate differences in them as yet to present day it is still a stallmate decision. :thumbdown:

Re: The origin of Dusun people and Kadazan word

Postby Jay Satora » Sun Feb 27, 2011 12:07 pm

Apabila saya mendengar cerita bapa saya tentang bagaimanakah perkataan 'Dusun' itu mula2 wujud atau kedengaran dan daripada mulut siapa dan kemudian diiktiraf oleh pemimpin terdahulu (orang-orang yg disebut dusun pada hari ini) saya merasa dukacita dan marah.

Ok, menurut bapa saya, orang Brunei memanggil orang yg menjual buah-buahan sebagai orang dusun. Di Kota Belud pada era tahun 1950an orang2 tindal turun ke KB menggunakan rakit dengan membawa segala macam buah-buahan untuk dijual. Sesampai di tamu KB orang2 dari berbagai suku, Brunei, Bajau, Cina dan orang putih menunggu untuk membeli buah-buahan. Mereka, terutama orang Brunei dan Orang putih berkata " Orang2 dusun sudah datang, mari kita pigi beli". Sejak dari itu perkataan "dusun" ini sudah biasa kedengaran dari mulut orang2 yg tidak sebangsa dengan kaum yang dipanggil Kaum Dusun sekarang.

Walaupun demikian pada masa itu (di KB) kaum ini (kaum yang dipanggil dusun sekarang)tidak suka dipangil dusun kerana bagi pendapat mereka perkataan ini menunjukkan orang duduk di hutan, di bukit dan tidak berduit. Jadi mereka mengekalkan nama kaum mereka iaitu TINDAL. Kalau tuan2 pigi ke Kota Belud, tuan jarang mendengar "Dusun toh ih tulun dih" tetapi tuan2 biasa dengar "Tindal toh ih tulun dih"

Kemusian selepas merdeka, bila bapa saya pigi mendaftarkan surat beranak untuk anak-anaknya bangsa ditulis pada surat beranak ialah sebagai Dusun oleh Jabatan Pendaftaran pada masa itu walaupun bapa saya berkeras untuk ditukar kepada TINDAL. Kerana tidak puas hati Bapa saya bertanya kepada pegawai pendaftaran kenapa jadi begini, pegawai itu menjawab "Pemimpin kaum Dusun mahu ini nama". Bapa saya pun tidak tahu siapa itu pemimpin dusun. Tetapi beliau pasti pemimpin tersebut bukan berasal dari KB.

Jadi jelaslah disini tuan2 bahawa kaum yang disebut dusun sekarang ini mempunyai pemimpin yang tolol (kurang bijak dari dulu lagi). Kalau dia bijak kenapa tidak guna nama suku lain dan jangan ikut orang. Biar ia cantik sikit, gaman toih!. Janganlah pijam orang punya bahasa. Kalau orang lain panggil dia dusun, dia pun cakap ya! kah?. "Ngoyo silaai lo busul ku kam ngoyon ka di tulun dit sorou" Begitu juga kini, di mana pemimpin kaum dusun silih beganti tapi masih lagi berminat dengan perkataan dusun.

Sebagai seorang Akauntan yg bertauliah dan telah bekerja di pelbagai syarikat dan banyak bertemu banyak orang2 dari konuniti perniagaan, dan juga banyak berkominikasi dengan mereka, malah mereka juga ada komen tentang nama kaum saya, Dusun. Kenapa ambil perkataan "dusun" tiada lainkah.

Kalau perkataan "Cina" memang wujud dari dulu lagi dan kedengaran elok kerana ia dapat melambangkan keadaan kehidupan mereka hingga pada hari ini. Tapi dusun juga melambang dan menggambarkan kehidupan mereka sehingga ke hari ini, pendengki, tidak menolong kaum sendiri, cakap banyak tapi tidak bikin dan ingin bergantung kepada orang lain saja.

Demikian untuk tatapan semua.
