In 1863 many Iban leaders from all over Sarawak gathered to join The Great Kayan Expedition which was lead by Charles Brooke himself.
In the book Ten Years in Sarawak, Charles Brooke wrote:
"June 1st, 1863, at 3.30 pm, the assembly was collected on the hard stones. All such matters, as before related, are discussed on the earth and without any roof. About a hundred or more chiefs were present, squatting in a circle, when I joined, accompanied by Fitz Cruickshank, and we sat in centre. Then a silent ensued, and I told them that, as far as we were able, we must now arranged the proceedings and division to advance one after another, I begged that all would keep order, and not rush on or run unnecessary risks, as if they allowed their people to push past dangerous places, accidents must happen. Another point which I had always made known with great emphasis was, that the chiefs must be answerable for the behaviour of their crew, to allow no quarelling or fighting. And the lives of women and children must be spared, as they could not be enemies of men.
