CATAPULTING

Momolisitik or catapulting is teenage children's activity of the KadazanDusun ethnic in Sabah, akin to the same game popular in Peninsular Malaysia. The catapult is a type of weapon for small hurls using two bands of rubber ropes joint at both top parts of a 'Y' shaped frame stick. There is a pouch for keeping the hurling objects joint at both the rubber ropes.

To use the catapult, the hurling objects such as small stones, rubber seeds or dry clay are placed inside the pouch. One hand holds the "Y" shaped frame stick whereas the other grips the pouch and pulls the rubber rope backwards. The further or longer the pull of the rubber rope the higher is the hurling power and the hurling object moves faster, firmer and further.
