  3. Hi, It’s your website’s ‘peminat’ from Indonesia again… Incidentally, I have been studying all about tribes in Sabah and the collection I have is pretty good: Just looking at the pictures above, you have mainly the Central Dusun like Garo, Tinagas & alantang; Northern Dusun like Sonsogon (Pitas), Palapazan (ota Marudu) and Gonsomon. The Tobilung tribes sometimes appear in a few costumes but the distinct about them are the women’s head cover. The Tindal & Tempasuk sometimes hard to differentiate, but the Tempasuk men’s costume tend to be less elaborate. Down south (Southern Dusunic) you will find the Tolinting, Minansut, Rumanau & Gana. The one that confusing (unless you hear the different accent, which I somehow learn about it) are the Eastern Dusunic – Makiang, Kolobuan, Tombonumo, Lobu Tampias in Ranau, Lobu Lanas in Kinabatangan, Dumpas, Mangkaak, Lingkabau, Segama, Sinorupu, Sukang & Minokok. From the pictures you have (you may have to double check with some expert): (1) Sungai Beluran (2) Garo (3)Kimaragang Tandek (4)looks like Tibabar from Tambunan (5)’Improvised’ Dumpas/Kolobuan (6) Talantang Taginambur(7) Tobilung Kota Belud (10) Bisaya? That’s all I can tell… I am still learning!!
