Sabah Society Talk on Sulu rule in North Borneo

3rd December, 2019

KOTA KINABALU: A UK Chevening Scholar will deliver a historic lecture on ‘A Sulu Chieftain on East Coast Sabah before Chartered Company Rule’ on Wednesday (Dec 4) at 8 pm at the Sabah Society premises at Damai Plaza, Luyang.

Dr Sanen Marshall a PhD holder from University Nottingham, UK, and a US Fulbright Scholar, has published a number of research articles on ethnic groups in Sabah including those pertaining to some aspects of Kadazandusun history and culture, and on the statelessness of the Bajau Laut.

His lecture will touch on the history of the Labuk River as a historical extension of the Sulu State on East Coast Sabah on the eve of the Chartered Company rule.

According to Sabah Society’s office, the Labuk River starts at Kuala Labuk and goes all the way to Tampias or Tampasis.

Dr Sanen will show how the pioneering Chartered Company officials began to take an interest in the local politics on the Labuk River in the late 19th century.

He opined that the Sulu Sultanate was not just a myth but a historical reality on East Coast Sabah.

The lecture will present the dynamics of the Sulu Chiefdom of the Labuk River and how it would have most liked functioned prior to the fall of the Sulu State.

Dr Sanen opined that even from the outlandish perspective of the Chartered Company officers, and even in the time of the abject decline of the Sulu Sultanate , the Labuk River looked nothing like a political vacuum.

The Sabah Society will also organise a study tour of Keningau’s Eco-Yap Farm, and Tenom’s Yit Foh Coffee Factory besides other attractions with an overnight stay at the coffee park chalets from Saturday Dec 7 to Sunday Dec 8.
