SEKEDA JERITA

1     Batu Tanam di Ulu Krian

NYAU tuai Demong sekali lebuh iya nemuai ngundang anak dulu ari Julau ke Paku, iya mai batu sigi lalu diujakka iya ba Nanga Entaih ari ili Nanga Awas di Ulu Krian.  Batu nya ambika tanda entara menua anak dulu enggau anak dudi iya diau. Baka tu ka sumpah Demong. Maya iya nanam batu tu: “Nyadi anak dulu aku tau pindah ka ujung jalai meraka batu tu, tang anak dudi aku enda tau nikal ngelui batu tu ka pun jalai.”

Nyadi sumpah Demong tu amat, laban bala Beketan anak dudi iya enggau Lemia lalu tepejuh jauh ke Ulu Belaga ngejang ari menua asal sida di Paku, tang bala Iban lalu mansang nguan menua Batang Rajang enggau serata menua Sarawak.

2   Beketan enggau Seru

Serambau enggau sida anak Demong diau dalam Batang Paku, bala Baketan kampung nguan menua Rimbas lalu menua Batang Krian bendar diuan mayuh ansa Seru. Endur sida tu tebal bendar diau di Bukit Tabujang, Ulu Awik, di Nanga Diso dalam Awik, Bukit Engkalat tebing ai Krian enggau di Ulu Melupa pati Krian.

Bansa Seru tu ganas bendar bejalai disebelah kampung dalam. Sida iya balat bendar bemunsuh enggau Iban. Keba tusah bendar Iban maya nya kelia, laban mayuh bendar sida parai kena bunuh Seru lebuh Iban agi berimba menua nguluka Paku enggau Layar.

Nyadi di Batang Rimbas tadi udah Garrai parai, iya lalu diganti anak iya Jana nyadi tuai. Endur rumah Jana tu di tembawai Sandong dalam Babu. Angkat Jana ari nya, baru iya berumah di Tembawai Manding dalam Metong, Rimbas tebing kanan mudik. Angkat iya an nya baru iya berumah di Nanga Gayau, alai iya panai tuai. Udah nadai agi Jana nuai tikal iya lalu ditampung anak iya Utong seduai Munan. Nyadi Munan tau matak kayau anak. Iya berumah di tembawai Seragau. Angkat iya ari nya berumah di Nanga Luop, ari nya angkat haru  lalu berumah di Nanga Tuang ari ili Nanga Bayor.

Ari Nanga Tuang seduai nyurutka diri baru lalu diau nguluka Babu. Ari Babu nya baru Utong seduai Munan pindah ka Melupa dalam Krian ka alai seduai diau nyentuk ka parai tuai. Semua menua alai Munan matak kayau anak ari Nanga Kalaka terus ka Nanga Oya ngelaban bansa Melanau.

Enti nitihka Munan seduai Utong tu endang peturun ari Padang ka mungkal Batang Rimbas, tang sepengudah Repun Betuah angkat ari Bangat lalu diau di Nanga Ulai, Akin datai ari Skrang lalu berimba menua Bayor, pia mega bala anembiak Radin ari Samu sama bela berimba menua Rimbas.  Ari tu tadi bala Munan seduai Utong lalu nyeliahka  diri melunggang ke Batang Krian lalu diau di Melupa.  Diatu bala peturun sida tu mayuh diau di Kaki Wong, Mapar enggau Nanga Drau, sepengudah rumah OK Temenggong Tandok alah laban OK  Janting ari Banting, Lingga.

Nyadi asal Baketan di Batang Rimbas nya niang Guling enggau Gambang sama petunggal Entingi tuai Baketan Paku. Guling nyerara din enggau Entingi, angkat an Bukit Saban Tinggi lalu berumah di Tinting Indai Tupai. Lebuh iya berumah ditu, dia entua iya Kuku paral, lalu bini iya Indai Tupai pan parai ga dia. Nyadi laban Kuku parai dia, nya alai bisi endur siti dia dikumbai Taju Kuku dataika kemaya ari tu.

Udah nadai agi nya tadi nya baru anembiak Guling rari melunggang nguluka Rimbas lalu diau di Tinting Tibak Sirat. Ari Tibak Sirat sida mupuk mindah ka bukit Tebalu di Ulu Budu pati Krian. Ari  nyin baru sida bisi angkat ka Tabujang ngulai Seru di ulu Awik.

Nyadi Gambang angkat ari Bukit Saban Tinggi dalam Paku ka Teluk Jerai, ari nya baru ka tinting Girau antara Krian enggau Saratok. Angkat iya ari Girau lalu pindah ngulai bansa Seru diau di Bukit Engkalat.  Nyadi sida ka diau di Bukit Tabujang tadi mindah baru lalu diau di Sugai pati Julau. Beketan Sugai tu pan abis pindah ke Ulu Batang Rajang laban dialahka Linggir Mali Lebu.

Nyadi lebuh Kaya jadi tuai megai menua Paku Ulu, alai Akin datai ari Skrang lalu minta diri berumah di Nanga Munan. Iya diau enggau anembiak iya dia tiga taun aja. Udah lepas tiga taun nya baru iya pindah melunggang ari Batang Paku ka Teru lalu diau dia. Kira lima taun sida udah diau dia, sida pindah melunggang ka Ulu Ulai pati Bayor. Endur rumah sida di Ulu Ulai nya ba Nanga Bejit. Ba rumah tu sida agi apin pechah ari raban diri. Udah nya lebuh Akin parai ngayau ngalahka Kampung Grugu, di Sarikai, iya diganti menantu iya Sibat jadi tuai nya haru sida berumpang menua nguluka Batang Bayor alah nyentuk ka Sungai Randau lalu terus ka entigis ulu Bayor bendar.

Nyadi laban sida tu ukai anembiak sida Padang datai ari Nanga Rimbas nya kabuah sida Akin ka mungkal menua Bayor dikumbai bansa Bayor laban penatai sida lain agi ari orang bukai ti diau ngerejang Batang Rimbas.

Endang kenyau an tubuh Akin ka tau kayau mungkal Batang Bayor, orang di menua nya endang kering bendar ati ngereja pengawa. Ari sida keih bendar gawa, nya alai mayuh bendar orang bukai neladan pengawa orang Bayur.  Agi menya orang Bayur, Rimbas enggau Paku sigi pelandika orang.  Nya alai kami di Batang Krian jarang amat betampil enggau orang menua nya belaki bebini laban enggaika enda tetundaka pengawa orang.

Nyadi bala Baketan ka sakali udah ngalahka rumah orang Kerangan dalam Krian ari Sugai. Pemanjai rumah nya ka 10 pintu aja. Nyadi iya ka benama Jilap nya ngaga pelabuh nungking ba tebelayar orang pala tangga. Kira dinihari alai bala Baketan nuntung ngalahka rumah sida. Bala Baketan ngibun orang serumah nya ba mua pintu, nganti orang pansut ka ruai mansang bekindu ba bedilang. Barang sapa orang pansut lalu dibunuh sida ba mua pintu. Udah iban mayuh parai dibunuh sida nya baru hari tekerebak tawas.

Udah sida munuh Iban, Baketan pulai nurun tangga ngalih ari pelabuh Jilap ka belalai baruh tangga seruran ngerurok berari munuh Baketan. Skali iya ngerejang datai ka dua tiga Baketan mati. Ari semua sida sarumah semina Jilap siku ngelaban inunsuh.

Nyadi orang ka dalam rumah barang ti belalai enda mati laban Baketan nadai tama ka bilik ngiga sida. Pia mega barang sapa sida muai diri ka tanah nya ka idup. Laban Baketan enda meda sida. Sakumbang Baketan ka munuh orang di rumah, sida enda nemu bisi orang diau ba pelabuh an luar rumah panjai, nya kabuah Beketan mega mayuh bendar parai ka dengah Jilap. Lebuh rumah Temenggong Tandok alah laban Janting di Nanga Melupa semina Jilap aja nitihka lalu munuh munsuh sabuah perau ka pulai menang ngayau nya.  Laban sida tu udah alah, tembawai sida dikumbai Tembawai Kerangan Alah dataika sari tu.

3  Seru and Beketan Krian attacks Iban

When Kalanang the second, Saang and Jantan were chiefs of the Paku, Patinggi Timbol of Kabong led the Seru and the Bukitan of the Krian to attack Bujang Berani’s longhouse at Ketubit, below Sungai Langit on the upper Layar River. The Patinggi led his Seru warriors up the Krian to collect Bukitan reinforcements. From there they marched to the Grenjang and on to Ulu Paku. From here they went up the Penom stream to Ketubit. When they arrived they were able to raid Bujang Berani’s house just at the time when its people were celebrating a feast. As a lot of people were drunk, they were easily defeated by Patinggi Timbul’s warriors.

The latter then set out to return to the Krian with their head trophies and loot. But when they reached a tributary of the Sungai Langit, they were attacked by the Layar Iban. During the fighting Patinggi Timbul and many of his warriors were killed. That is why the stream on which they fought is called Sungai Bangkai Lawai meaning the stream of Malay corpses. Lawai is an old Iban word for Malay. Due to the destruction of Bujang Berani’s longhouse at Ketubit by Patinggi Timbul and his fighters, the site on which it had stood became a cemetery, Pendam Ketubit, and is still used by the Iban in the area to the present day.

4   Ugat of Paku attacks Seru

When Mawar Tuai was chief of Bangat and the lower Layar regions, Baling was an active warrior in the upper Skrang. In his wars he drove out the Skrang Bukitan to the Kanowit, which caused them to settle in various scattered places along the Ensiling and Mujok streams and in the Sugei of Bulau River. After Baling died his nephew Nyaru, son of Bakar, attacked the Ulu Paku Bukitans at Nanga Deran. This raid took place when Uyut “Bedilang Besi” was chief of the lower Paku and Anyut rivers. At this time the upper Paku watershed was leaderless after the death of Blaki who had been murdered by the Serus. Blaki’s sons, Bayang and Ugap, were still too young to lead the people. It was because of this that the decision of Awan of the Padeh to marry young Lada was promptly accepted by Bayang and Ugap and their relatives, including their uncle Uyut “Bedilang Besi”, who felt that the upper Paku region should be defended against attacks from the Serus of Krian. At this time “Bedilang Besi” had left them to stay with his wife Nangku, a daughter of chief Saang of the lower Paku and Anyut Rivers.

After he had defeated the Nanga Deran Bukitan, Nyaru migrated to the Paku with his son Libau. In this new area Nyaru and Libau were not leaders, until Libau’s son Kaya married Sawai a daughter of Lada and Awan. Sawai was an heiress of Busu, the father of Uyut “Bedilang Besi”. Nyaru’s sister Rabiah was the mother Mujah “Buah Raya”, who later migrated from the Paku to become famous chief of the Kanowit people.

After the death of Kaya, his eldest son became chief of the upper Paku. When he was old, Jantan directed that all his sons and daughters be separated from him and lead people to live in various longhouses along the banks of the upper Paku river, in the following order:

Libau “Buban” was to stay with Jantan at Nanga Samu. Saing was to build his longhouse at Jukun. Laus and her husband Lanchang were to live at Nanga Buong, and Kadir and Langan were to live at Danau.

At the death of Jantan, Libau “Buban” became the senior chief of the upper Paku river. He was not a man of war but was very straight forward in dealing with the affairs of his people. When Libau was old, Kadir and Langan separated from each other. Kadir went to live with his followers at Penom, while Danau was taken care of by his son Unchi. Langan built his longhouse at Meroh, near the source of the Paku river. At about this tune Libau’s sons Kaya and Ugat married. Kaya stayed in his father’s house while Ugat, went to live with his wife who was the only daughter of Langan at Meroh. Their sister Janta married Kadir, a son of Orang Kaya Linggang of the Rimbas. After her marriage, Janta left her father and went to live in the same longhouse as her uncle Saing, who had moved from Jukun to Batu Genting.

Ugat was a brave warrior who was hostile to the Brunei government, represented by Laksamana Amir who lived at the Malay village of Buling. Due to his hostility, he defied the Laksamana by slashing a mungut basket, which was used by Brunei tax collectors for collecting padi for the yearly tax from the Dayaks and Malays of the Paku River. The Laksamana was angry. Therefore Ugat planned a rebellion which was supported by all the upper Paku Iban. The Iban who had settled in the Anyut tributary did not support Ugat, since Linggir “Mali Lebu” and his families were very friendly with the Laksamana and his family. In order to start the revolt, Ugat led his warriors to attack the Beliun in the Sarikei River. By doing this he could at the same time stop the migrants from the Layar and Skrang rivers from migrating to the Awik, a tributary of the Krian and to Pakan a tributary of the Julau – the places which he and his people intended to occupy after their rebellion was over.

After the preparations for the war against Sarikei were completed, Ugat and his warriors went up to the Paku and Ketoh streams. From the Ketoh watershed they climbed the Medang range and went on to Nanga Lu’ong on the Krian River. They stayed the night at Nanga Luong. Next day they traveled up the Luong stream towards the Dangap stream and went down to its mouth. From here they travelled up the Budu stream to Nanga Dasi and then went up the Dasi stream to the Emperawan Pakap Mawi range. From there they traveled to the headwaters of the Awik River, where they stayed the second night. As the Awik watershed was close to the source of the Sarikei River, Ugat held his council of war here. In the conference he directed that they proceed early next day to the Sarikei river watershed where they would stay the third and final night before they assaulted the enemy. He also warned his warriors that they were not to make any noise when inside the enemy territory, as they must not be heard by the wandering Beliun and the Bukitan of the Julau. He was aware that if they were discovered by the Bukitans, the latter would spread the news to all the Beliuns of the Sarikei River. Above all, for the safety of his warriors, he arranged that the leading warriors Ramping, Doo, Ita and Japang should go as advance scouts a mile ahead of the others. They must not carry any baggage, but would be fully equipped with swords, spears and shields.

Next morning they left the place after the four leading warriors were gone. Eventually at noon they reached a Beliun village. On their way to the nearest house Ramping and Ita passed a banana plantation where they killed a woman who was clearing her garden. As they killed her they were seen by several people who raised the alarm all through the village, telling of their approach.

Ramping and Ita took the woman’s head to Ugat. Ugat was worried when they told him that while they were killing her they had been seen by enemies who had fled to the village to inform their people. Hearing this Ugat stopped his warriors from advancing further. He was afraid that if they risked invading the village, they would meet stiff resistance, as the enemy would be fully prepared to defend themselves. So he brought his warriors back to the Paku.

After he had failed to defeat the Beliun of Sarikei, Ugat decided once again to lead his warriors on the warpath. This time he decided to attack the Serus who had settled below the Embuas rapids in the lower Krian River. At this time none of the Iban who had migrated from the Rimbas had settled above the Embuas rapids. The only areas that had been settled by them were the Melupa tributary together with both banks of the middle reaches of the Krian River. Due to the small number of settlers, the Iban longhouse at Berangan Arang had twice been attacked by Bukitan from the Julau River.

To attack the Seru, Ugat led his warriors from Ulu Paku to Ulu Krian where they built a warboat, or perau pengayau. After the boat had been completed they went down the Krian to the Embuas rapids. After they had left it the leading warriors were ordered by Ugat to steer the boat at the bow, while he himself was at the stem. The other warriors sat inside, under an awning made from palm leaves. Eventually as they came to Satebok, they heard the noise of people coming by boat from downriver. Hearing this, Ramping and Japang steered the boat to the bank in order to hide themselves below the tree branches. When they had quietly hidden themselves a longboat full of men, women and children appeared. These people were on their way to attend a wedding feast upriver. Excited on seeing them, Japang urged his friends to attack the boat at once. They paddled towards it. As they came near to it, Ramping and Japang threw spears at the enemies and killed two of them. Ugat who was at the stern killed another. Seeing the danger, the enemies fought very hard to defend their women and children. They were able to reach Ugat’s warriors inside the boat with their seligi spears made of the strong trunks of the nibong palm. Ugat’s warriors underneath the awning of the boat could not fight nor defend themselves as they could not come out while their boat was in the middle of the river. Among those who were speared by the Serus were Unchi a son of Kadir and Lunyai, a son of Laus and Lanchang, both of whom were badly wounded. So Ugat and his warriors returned up the Krian in order to march back to the Paku.

A few years after Ugat had attacked the Serus of the lower Krian, he had a dream. In it he met a number of people coming into his house at Nanga Tiang. They told Ugat that they were on their way to Bangat and wanted him to entertain them with a grand festival where they could enjoy the meat of pigs. At this time all the people of the upper Paku lived together in a large longhouse under Ugat and his brother Kaya, while their father Libau stayed alone at Ulu Samu after he had eloped with Saap following the death of his first wife, Nawi. Due to the request of the people whom Ugat saw in his dream, he called everyone to meet at his longhouse to discuss what to do about it. Kelass the son of Saing was of the opinion that it was time now for Ugat to hold a grand festival to celebrate his two victories over his enemies at Sarikei and lately in the lower Krian. The rest of the people agreed with Kelass. They wanted Ugat to hold the feast as soon as he could.
