Which one??:Kumang Bidayuh or Dayung Bidayuh for Ethnic Beauty Pageant Title !!

DAYUNG IYANG -SIKASUN RAYA.( Biatah Area) 
Since "KUMANG " is The Mother Goddess of Ibans. & 'Dayung' means girl in Bidayuh.

After the 1st Kumang Gawai Beauty Pageant in 1960s. The "Kumang" is synonym with Iban Ethnic Beauty Pageant ..The Kumang is a Legendary .The meaning is not just a "Girl" or "Induk Iban".Kumang name is a legend by its history .

In Fact,the Bidayuh has a sub-tribe & different dialect..to chose the right TITLE when involve the Beauty Pageant of Bidayuh outside the sub-ethnic origin is a "Crucial" ..but to putting the TITLE as a "DAYUNG" rather than KUMANG will reflect the true identity of the Bidayuh itself.

Dayung Bidayuh or Dayung Bi Dayeh ..maybe the most closer..when the pageant held outside Kuching( In fact,Bidayuh are origin from Kuching  (LunduBau, Penrissen, Padawan, Siburan and Serian.)& West Kalimantan)
