Pemetaan Budaya



Rampanau or Minsurukud is popular among the Dusun communities especially in the districts of Tambunan, Keningau and Ranau in Sabah. Nowadays, this game can only be seen in the Pesta Kaamatan celebration that is the festival after the harvesting season, and rarely played by the communities due to the influence of the flow of epoch modernisation.

This game usually uses a sago palm tree branch, hard wood and two bamboo sticks measuring about three metres to 10 metres specially designed as high heel shoes. The sago palm tree branch and hard wood are for placing the feet. The bamboo is punched to make a hole measuring about eight centimetres to five centimetres. To play, the players must walk or run using this 'rampanau' tool. Players who fall down are considered losers.
