Biography

Datuk Seri Panglima O.K.K Gunsanad Kina (S.P.D.K)

1. Born in 1840 in Bandukan, Keningau

2. Eldest son in his family and also known as Botut among relatives. He grew up doing
farming and small businesses

3. His life changed when he obtained a shiny stone known as the Kumala. The event
occurred when he followed his dad to Kimanis and Bongawan to sell their farm goods
which was mainly cotton

4. In order to get to the towns which happened to be the main trading center at that time,
people would have to walk on foot across the Crocker range for days through hills and
mountains

5. After a day/s journey, they rested on an area close to the river. They eventually camp for the
night

6. During the night, Agiu, one of the group members and Gunsanad went to fish at the river

7. It was suprising to his friends how well Gunsanad can stay long underwater and was
even able to catch a fish as big as him

8. The big fish became a nice dinner for all and all slept soundly through the night. That
night, Gunsanad had a dream about obtaining the Kumala at the same spot where he
caught the fish

9. The dream woke him up, only to find himself staring blankly on his friends who are still
sleeping soundly. Following his gut instinct, he went to the river to look for the mystic
stone

10. Even with the icy cold water that flows at the dead of night, Gunsanad dive in to the river
but was unable to locate the stone even after a few attempts

11. Crestfallen, he was about to walk away when suddenly from the corner of his eyes, he
saw something shimmering in the water

12. He immediately dive into the glowing water and this time, after diving deeper than he did
before, there it was at the bottom of the river, the shiny stone, Kumala.

13. Filled with rejoice, he slipped the stone into his pouch and head back to the camp and
only to find everyone else looking for him. He decided to keep the secret to himself, he told
them he just felt like taking a cold swim at that time and everyone believed him

14. The journey continued the next day and fortunate enough, they were able to sell most of
their goods at the towns

15. When Gunsanad grew up, he became more involve in the cotton business and end up
selling at the same place where he used to trade with his dad and friends. His business
soon expand and involved more goods such as rubber and clothes until he eventually
was able to open a shop in Papar

16. Having limited knowledge in business, he first attempt failed but it doesn't stop him from
trying again. He opened 2 more shops in Keningau and Sapulut but for the second time,
he went bankrupt.

17. He finally decided to return to his former business and spend most of his time with his
family in Bandukan, Keningau

18. In 1915, Gunsanad was given the title OKK (Orang Kaya-Kaya) for his leadership in doing
his job with the BCC (British Chartered Company)

19. He was appointed to lead a negotiation in Rundum to promote peace among the locals
and the company. Tribe clashes were common in Rundum were common those days and
many people were killed in the war

20. The war started when the BBC began imposing high and unnecessary taxes to the people
especially the poor ones

21. Gunsanad and his nephew Musad tried their best to reach an agreement with the locals
but only half of the people are willing to pay the taxes

22. During the visit, one of the villagers befriended Musad and offered to bring him and his
group to a good hunting ground in the area. Musad accepted the offer

23. Unfortunately, the whole thing was a setup. They were ambushed in the jungle by a group
called Alison and Musad was badly injured while the others have either fled or died.
Musad was able to escape with his life but died before reaching Gunsanad

24. The story finally reached the BCC and they decided to take stern action against the people

25. Gunsanad and his troops were given guns and ammunitions and this lead to the
Rundum war. Many were killed in action but few survived by hiding in caves. This doesn't
stop the troops from hunting them down. Knowing that the villagers use the river as food
and water source, they poisoned the river and so more of the people were killed even
when they're hiding

26. Those that do survived, were also killed and even got their heads chopped off as proof of
their victory to the British

27. The skulls were said to be kept by one of Gunsanad's children and were also said to be
used in certain ceremony

28. He played a role in the war against Mat Salleh in Tambunan in 1874 to 1900 but the whole
story was never documented

Family legends and stories
The Rooster and the journeys - Magdalene Sandy who heard it many times from her grandmother, Linggai Gunsanad. There are several versions of this story. This is one of them.
The story began with our very first known ancestors, Nanangkis and his wife, Babalayong. This family lived at the foothills of Mt Kinabalu innunuk Ragang. A son was born to them. They named him Kimbalu. When Kimbalu was born,he was clutching an egg, so the story goes. Soon the egg turned into a rooster. The little boy and the rooster becamevery close friends. Unfortunately, Kimbalu was a sickly child. His worried parents did not understand why Kimbalu was always sick and did not know what to do.
One day, Babalayong had a dream. In her dream she was told the reason why her son always sick. Near her family hut was a big tree with thick foliage. On top of the tree lived a huge eagle. Its wings were so large that they blocked the sun from the family hut. Babalayong was told that, to stop Kimbalu from being sick, they must get rid of the bird.
The next morning, the family went out and look a good look at the tree. Sure enough, a huge bird lived on top of it. In front of the disbelieving eyes of the villagers the brave, strong Nanangkis killed the monster bird with just one blow from his blowpipe. From then on, Kimbalu was a healthy boy. So the legend began and Nanangkis became the leader of his community.
Not long after, Nanangkis had a dream. In his dream he was told to move to another place where food would be plentiful. He was to let the rooster show the, the way. So,off they went. All the villagers went with Nanangkis. They spent many months travelling to the unknown, through jungle and across mountain ranges. They endured many hardships, but Nanangkis, the leader, kept them going. When they finally arrived in alush green valley where rivers and streams were filled with fish and fruit trees were plentiful, the rooster jumped onto a branch of a tree and started to crow. It was the sign to the tribe that this was the place where they should stay. This place is now called Tambunan.
Some time later, Nanangkis and several members of the tribe continued to journey south. They arrived at a place where the rooster again sat on a tree branch and crowed. This place is now called Bingkor. Nanangkis stayed there for several years. Then, he and some others journeyed to another place, where food was abundant and the river was crystal clear. When they arrived at this place, Nanangkis decided this was the place to call home. The family built its bamboo hut on top of a soft undulating hill surrounded by cinnamon trees and overlooking a beautiful river. This place is now called Bandukan. There they stayed and worked on the land. Soon their community grew and Nanangkis and his family became properous. Some members of the original tribe from Nunuk Ragang ventured to Keningau and elsewhere. And, as we know today of course, some of the descendants of Nanangkis became legends themselves, and are spread out all over the Interior, elsewhere in Sabah, mainland Malaysia and the world beyond. The Rooster became the family emblem.
Generations later, the most prominent and charismatic of all the descendants of Nanangkis appeared. His name was Gunsanad. His was an enigmatic persona, shrouded in mystery and intrigue. Many stories and legends were told about him. Here is one story.
One day, Gunsanad, his father, cousin Agiu and friends went on their usual trek up north. They walked for weeks across the Croker Range to the coastal towns of Kimanis and Papar to sell their cotton, spices and rubber produce, and bring back things like salt, sugar, clothing and other necessities.
On their way back to Bandukan, the group stopped to camp overnight on the bank of Kimanis River, as they did on their many previous trips. Thai night Gunsand had a dream. He dreamt he found something very special in the river. He worke up and decided to look at the river. Something caught Gunsanad's eye - for the mysterious, shimmering thing. Suddenly, he saw it. It was a beautiful stone. It was almost opaque - its texture was cloudy, but light was able to shine throught it. Gunsanad swam tried to pick it up, but the stone seemed to have a life of its own. it ran away from him - upstream! Gunsanad swam after it, and again it raced away from him. Even though he was avery good swimmer and could stay under water for a long time, Gunsanad finally gave up. He returned to the camp and all night long thought about that shinning stone.
The next morning, as the group resumed its journey home, Gunsanad suddenly ran back to the river. He decided to look for the stone for one last time. His father, Kina, and the others saw Gunsanad disappear in the water. Gunsanad swam and searched. As though guided by a friendly spirit, he finally found the shinning stone in the deepest part of the Kimanis River.
When he surfaced from the water, Gunsanad decided to keep his find secret. He believed that this was a magical stone and that it had chosen him to keep and care for it. But word got out somehow and people started to talk about the magical stone that Gunsanad found in the deepest part of Kimanis River. Over time, some people came to believe that the stone also gave Gunsanad special powers. As Gunsanad's business continued to grow and brought him great welath, they thought this prosperity was due to the stone. The magical stone is called Kumala and is being kep, until this day, by one of Gunsanad's descendants.
 


 Thus began the legend of OKK Datuk Seri Panglima  Gunsanad.


KINA: Born in the early 19th century, initially lived in the foothills of MT Kinabalu and later sttled in Bandukan, Bingkor. Not much is known about Kina except that he was a successful and determined businessman who acquired wealth which he passed on to his children. Some of his descendants are convinced that either his ather, or Kina himself come from China (as his name implies in the Dusun language) as a trader. His relatives cite other evidence in support of his Chinese origin, including the fact that he was an adherent of Taoism, one of the principal religions of China, and his introduction of farming methods previously unknown in Bandukan. In an article Malaysian Families: State's born leaders in the star newspapaer dated june 3rd 2007, Elizabeth Tai wrote of Kina - "From him came politicians, businessmen, activists and clan leaders who would shape the fortunes of Sabah." Among them were, of course, his son Gunsanad and grandson Sedomon Sedomon who also became legends in their own time. The present Chief minister of State of Sabah, Datuk Seri Musa haji Aman, is his great grandson.



Kina, The Lord Of Keningau

Kina, the brave and adventurous 19th century KadazanDusun chief who developed modern Keningau in Sabah's Interior Residency, was a legend in his lifetime.

The brave and fearless pioneer was born in Papar, near Kota Kinabalu, and was of Papar, Penampang, Ranau and Sandakan KadazanDusun lineage.

Coincidentally, Papar is also the ancestral home of Tun Muhammad Fuad Donald Stephens, Sabah's first Chief Minister from 1963-1964 and Sabah's first post-Independence Hoguan Siou (or Paramount Chief of the KadazanDusun people, a post now held by his political protege, sixth Sabah Chief Minister from 1985-1994 and current Sabah Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Joseph Pairin Kitingan of the Sabah United Party aka PBS).

Kina, a man determined to improve the lives of his people through modern agriculture and business methods, in emulation of the successful Chinese settlers and the British colonialists in Sabah, left his home for Beaufort and eventually Keningau, where he married a wife of Keningau and Beaufort KadazanDusun ancestry in the mid 1800s.

He had several children, the most famous of which was Gunsanad Kina, whom the British colonialists recognised as the King of the Interior Residency (covering the districts of Kuala Penyu, Beaufort, Sipitang, Tenom, Pensiangan, Keningau and Tambunan).

Gunsanad Kina succeeded his father as the leader of the KadazanDusuns of Keningau and Beaufort. He continued his father's plans to modernise his people in emulation of the Chinese and British.

Gunsanad did not oppose the British and controversially sided with the colonialists when some of his fellow KadazanDusun leaders of the Interior Residency joined the Bajau Regent of Sulu (and Sabah), Datu Mat Salleh during his five-year anti-British rebellion from 1895-1900.

Mat Salleh was eventually killed by a traitor in his ranks. The slain regent was the great grandfather of Sabah's first State Governor (1963-1965) and third Chief Minister (1967-1975) the late Tun Datu Mustapha Datu Harun who was born in Kudat.

Gunsanad chose to work with the British because he believed they were technologically superior and no Sabahan would be able to progress without their guidance.

London conferred an Order of the British Empire on Gunsanad for his services in supporting the British Empire and modernising his people.

In 2004, his descendant Musa Aman posthumously awarded him the title of Datuk Seri. The award was given out by Sabah's ninth and current State Governor Tun Ahmadshah Abdullah of the Bajau heartland Kota Belud.

Ironically, the forefathers of the State Governor were staunchly behind Mat Salleh, as were Ahmadshah's kinsmen the Keruak family - including Sabah's fourth Chief Minister and seventh State Governor Tun Said Keruak and his son, eighth Chief Minister Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak - which pioneered the modernisation of Kota Belud in emulation of the Chinese and British.

The famous descendants of Kina, and Gunsanad, include the Aman brothers Ayub, Musa and former Federal Deputy Minister Datuk Anifah Aman, High Court judge Datuk Nurchaya Arshad, former Sabah State Minister Tan Sri Stephen (Suffian) Koroh, Sabah's fifth State Governor Tun Thomas (Ahmad) Koroh (the elder brother of Suffian), Stephens' comrades during the fight for Independence Datuk Gunsanad Samson Sundang and his brother Datuk Sedomon Gunsanad and respected KadazanDusun politicians and bureaucrats Tan Sri Joseph Kurup, Datuk Robert Evans and Datuk Bernard Maraat.

LEGENDARY COCK OF MYSTERY 


Orang Kaya-Kaya Gunsanad Kina age 90 years old died on 1st January 1930. He had 16 sons, 18 daughters, 52 grandsons, 44 grand daughters and 180 great grand Children. He was paranormal chief and Great leader of The Dusun and Murut Of The Interior. His Ancestor's Pioneered Migration of the Dusun from Nunuk Ragang to the Tambunan and Keningau plains many centuries ago. To date the Dusun are widely spread out all over Sabah sometimes in 1900. The Britsh North Borneo Government Appointed him as Chief representing the Native Population Of The Interior and Sabah as a whole on a number of Occasions. He was responsible for Negotiating for Example The Rebellion of Mat Salleh in 1900 and Rundum in 1915. For Reason of his indispensible service with the government and dedication to His people. He was obliged to remain at his post. Till death through his long connection with the Chinese, he was popularly known to them throughout Sabah as the ‘SAN TAI WONG'meaning ‘KING OF THE WILD INTERIOR'

Sabahans Pay Tribute To 
“King Of The Interior”
This is based on a report by the New Straits Times.

Nearly 3,000 descendants of Datuk Seri Panglima Gunsanad Kina recently paid tribute to the man who was nicknamed "King of the Interior".

Gunsanad earned the title because he united the Kadazan-Dusun people of Sabah’s Interior Division, centred in Keningau and comprising the districts of Sipitang, Beaufort, Kuala Penyu, Tenom, Tambunan, Keningau and Pensiangan.

Among Gunsanad's illustrious descendants is Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman who attended the event at the Keningau Community Hall.

The Kadazan-Dusun leader’s other descendants include Musa’s elder brother, former Sabah State Cabinet Minister Datuk Ayub Aman and his younger brother, Federal Deputy Minister Datuk Anifah Aman.

Gunsanad's other descendants include former Sabah State Governor (Yang Dipertua Negeri) Tun Ahmad Koroh (partly of Murut descent), his brother and Ayub’s former colleague Tan Sri Suffian Koroh, Pensiangan Member of Parliament Datuk Bernard Maraat (partly of Murut descent) and Datuk Sedomon Gunsanad and Datuk Gunsanad Samson Sundang who were Sabah’s independence leaders and founders of the United PasokMomogun KadazanDusun Organisation (precursor to Parti Bersatu Rakyat Jelata Sabah [Sabah United People's Party or BERJAYA] and its current reincarnation the United Malay National Organisation [UMNO] Sabah chapter led by Musa).

Gunsanad, who was the first Kadazan-Dusun to open a rubber small-holding in Bingkor, Keningau died in 1930 at the age of 90.

Two secondary schools in Keningau are named after him.
Gunsanad, who was also highly regarded for his mediation skills, received many medals, including the OBE (Order of the British Empire).

He was posthumously awarded a Datuk Seri title by Sabah State Governor Tun Ahmadshah Abdullah of Kota Belud in 2004.

Sabah’s indigenous people form 80 per cent of the state’s population and comprise the Kadazan-Dusuns (45 per cent), Bajaus (18 per cent including Ahmadshah), Bruneians (10 per cent) and Muruts (7 per cent).

The remaining 20 per cent of the population comprises Chinese Sabahans.

UCAPAN Y.A.B. DATUK SERI PANGLIMA MUSA HAJI AMAN, KETUA MENTERI SABAH SEMPENA MAJLIS PERHIMPUNAN KELUARGA AKI KINA DAN PENGHORMATAN PENGANUGERAHAN PINGAT KEBESARAN NEGERI SABAH (S.P.D.K.) KEPADA Y.BHG. DATUK SERI PANGLIMA OKK GUNSANAD BIN KINA, DI DEWAN MASYARAKAT KENINGAU

PADA 24 NOVEMBER 2007



Terlebih dahulu saya merakamkan setinggi-tinggi penghargaan dan terima kasih kepada semua pihak yang telah berganding bahu dan bertungkus-lumus menjayakan majlis pada hari ini. Sesungguhnya majlis yang diadakan ini bolehlah saya sifatkan sebagai majlis yang penuh bersejarah disebabkan majlis ini telah mempertemukan hampir seluruh ahli dalam Keluarga Besar Gunsanad. Saya berasa bangga dan terharu atas keprihatinan pihak-pihak yang sanggup mengorbankan masa dan tenaga untuk mencari ahli-ahli keluarga yang jauh dan dekat agar dapat disatukan di bawah satu “Family Tree”.



Kita sedar bahawa usaha untuk menyatukan sesebuah keluarga yang memiliki ahli yang ramai bukanlah mudah jika tidak disertai dengan komitmen yang tinggi serta keinginan untuk melihat sesebuah keluarga itu bersatu di bawah satu payung. Inilah sebenarnya yang sama-sama kita saksikan pada hari ini, iaitu perhimpunan sebuah keluarga besar yang berjaya diadakan melalui gabungan usaha gigih dan komitmen yang tinggi.



Pada hari ini, saya percaya, tidak ramai daripada kita yang sanggup melakukan kerja-kerja mengumpul maklumat berkaitan dengan ahli-ahli keluarga yang tidak kita kenali. Malah mungkin ramai daripada kita yang akan mengambil sikap mudah untuk hanya mengenali saudara mara yang terdekat sahaja. Namun, dalam dunia moden sekarang ini masih ada insan-insan berhati mulia yang tidak kenal erti penat lelah berkorban berpuluh tahun untuk memenuhi matlamat ini. Justeru, tidak hairanlah mengapa sambutan majlis pada hari ini diadakan secara besar-besaran disebabkan kita sama-sama ingin meraikan kejayaan insan-insan ini yang tidak jemu-jemu hendak mempertemukan kita semua.



Saya ingin mengambil kesempatan untuk mengingatkan kepada seluruh ahli keluarga ini, khususnya kepada generasi muda agar mengambil peluang ini untuk mengenali antara satu sama lain, supaya apabila bertemu nanti pada masa dan tempat yang berbeza, kita menjadi semakin mesra dan bukannya seperti bertemu dengan orang lain. Inilah sebenarnya antara manfaat kita mengadakan perjumpaan keluarga seperti hari ini, iaitu cuba mendekatkan diri anak-anak kita supaya mereka dapat menilai sendiri kepentingan menjaga serta memelihara perhubungan antara ahli keluarga.



Saya juga amat menghargai usaha-usaha untuk membukukan salasilah keluarga ini yang diketuai oleh Connie Lupang. Saya percaya, pendekatan yang diambil ini sudah tentu akan membolehkan kita pada hari ini mendapat gambaran lebih jelas tentang asal-usul kita dan dari mana sebenarnya keluarga kita bermula. Kita tidak nafikan bahawa sekiranya salasilah ini tidak direkodkan atau dibukukan sudah tentu pada masa akan datang kita terpaksa mengulangi usaha yang sama dan ini sebenarnya akan merugikan kita disebabkan terlalu banyak masa dan tenaga yang telah terbuang. 

Justeru, saya berharap generasi yang ada sekarang ini dapat mengambil inisiatif untuk menyimpan rekod salasilah keluarga ini sebaik mungkin agar mampu digunakan sebagai rujukan oleh generasi-generasi akan datang dan juga sebagai salah satu usaha kita menghargai penat lelah yang dilakukan oleh pihak terbabit yang menjayakan aktiviti pembukuan salasilah keluarga ini. Memandangkan pencarian ahli-ahli keluarga ini masih belum selesai sepenuhnya meskipun telah meliputi 95 peratus, saya menyeru kepada ahli-ahli keluarga yang lain supaya dapat memberi kerjasama yang sewajarnya supaya usaha ini dapat dijayakan sepenuhnya kelak.



Dalam kita meniti cabaran era globalisasi ini, kita tidak terlepas daripada berhadapan dengan pelbagai kemungkinan yang mampu menjejaskan hubungan kekeluargaan antara sesama kita. Oleh itu, kita perlu ada kekuatan dalaman yang benar-benar mantap supaya persekitaran serba moden ini tidak dapat mempengaruhi hubungan kasih sayang dalam keluarga kita, apatah lagi jika kita mempunyai rangkaian ahli keluarga yang ramai. 



Sehubungan itu, saya menyeru kepada para ibu bapa yang hadir dalam majlis ini supaya sentiasa memberi ingatan serta panduan kepada anak-anak agar mereka tidak membiarkan diri mereka terlalu terikut-ikut dengan perubahan gaya hidup zaman sekarang. Pengaruh yang mereka terima ini dibimbangi mampu menjadikan mereka terlalu bebas sehingga menyebabkan mereka lupa kepada asal-usul mereka sendiri, sekaligus menyumbang kepada keretakan hubungan antara sesama ahli keluarga. Inilah yang perlu kita sama-sama elakkan kerana jika kita tidak berupaya mengelakkannya sekarang, kita takut perkara ini akan menggugat hubungan kekeluargaan kita pada masa akan datang.



Seperkara lagi yang ingin saya tekankan di sini ialah para ibu bapa mestilah sepanjang masa memberi penekanan secara serius terhadap pendidikan anak-anak. Ini kerana hanya melalui pendidikan sahajalah yang mampu mengubah kehidupan sesebuah keluarga, daripada keluarga miskin kepada keluarga yang berada, daripada keluarga yang tidak dihormati kepada keluarga yang mendapat kedudukan baik dalam masyarakat. Namun, untuk menjadikan anak-anak kita manusia yang lebih berguna dan disegani, kita perlulah menyeimbangkan pendidikan mereka antara pendidikan bersifat formal dengan pendidikan kerohanian. Dengan adanya gabungan kedua-dua jenis pendidikan ini, saya percaya jiwa anak-anak kita akan lebih mantap dan kukuh terutama untuk menghadapi suasana kehidupan zaman sekarang dan akan datang.



Sebelum mengakhiri ucapan ini, saya mengambil kesempatan untuk menyeru kepada seluruh ahli Keluarga Gunsanad yang hadir pada hari ini agar terus memelihara dan menjaga dengan sebaik mungkin hubungan kekeluargaan yang sebenarnya telah terjalin sejak sekian lama. Saya berharap selepas ini seluruh ahli keluarga akan terus mengadakan perhubungan secara berterusan dan konsisten untuk menjamin kesinambungan hubungan kekeluargaan ini pada masa-masa akan datang. Saya sentiasa mendoakan agar kehidupan kita semua dalam keluarga yang besar ini disertai dengan kebahagiaan dan kesejahteraan yang berpanjangan.



Akhirnya, saya sekali lagi merakamkan setinggi-tinggi penghargaan dan terima kasih kepada seluruh pihak yang telah menjayakan usaha mengumpulkan salasilah keluarga ini dan menganjurkan majlis pada malam ini. Bergembiralah anda semua sebagai meraikan kejayaan usaha kita selama ini untuk bersatu di bawah satu keluarga yang besar. Sekian dan terima kasih.
