MIGOGO

In the KadazanDusun language Migogo means "to hug someone's or an opponent's body and drop him with the hands". This traditional game is an activity of the KadazanDusun ethnic that is usually played on the paddy fields after the planting or harvesting seasons. The male players compete with their strengths and skills to attract the attention of village girls to be made as wives. Popular in the 1930s and 1940s, presently since the 1950s this game is made as one of the activities in the Kaamatan Festival celebration that is the festival after paddy harvesting.
