As morning breaks for our group at the beginning of episode 6, we start to grasp the sheer beauty of Long Sa’an. Philius continues to pay tribute to his ancestors before introducing us to the stunning spot where the people of the village used to come for bathing and rice preparation.
As the episode evolves we start to get more details on the decision by the elders to leave Long Sa’an in 1968 due to a number of factors including its isolation, as well as access to fresh water as the seasons changed. We see Philius’s friends departing Long Sa’an, reminiscing on the joyous times they spent there together. The journey to leave Long Sa’an in the late 60’s was a challenging one, with ……… having to carry her two month old child some distance on foot as no boats were available at the time. Incredibly her child had doubled in age by the time they arrived in the village of Setulang.
The episode closes with the group, led by Philius, making their way to the burial site of the Dayak ancestors, which arguably has the greatest view of any gravesite in the world.
