Kaamatan Queens of Yesteryears (1981-1990)

This is the third segment where I am featuring the Kaamatan Queens of yesteryears - they were the Queens of the 1980s era. They were known as Ratu Kaamatan (Kaamatan Queen) during this decade.

Just wanna share you with the picture on the left. It was an advertisement in the mids 80s by a tele-communication company where the leading priestesses was doing the magavau (sacred ritual ceremony) holding a handphone trying to call the Bambarayon (the spirit of the paddy). The advert received so many complaints due to the insensitivity of the communication provider towards the Kadazandusun community. But hey, that was in the 1980s! Back in the present time, my next post shall be the Kaamatan Queens of the 1990s.

See you all later in a bit.

I didn't realise they're all from Penampang in this decade.
I have to say they're all very pretty though.
