Kaamatan or Pesta Kaamatan is a harvest festival celebrated by the ethnic Kadazan-Dusuns, as well as by other related ethnic groups in the state.
The festival lasts for the whole month of May, ending with two days of public holidays.
Pesta Kaamatan is the time for thanksgiving for the bountiful harvest and also the time for a get-together, to feast and to renew communal relationships.
Kaamatan is also a time to share traditional food, such as the 'hinompot' (rice cooked and wrapped in leaves), hinava (a dish made of fish, lime juice, bird’s eye chilli, sliced shallots and grated ginger) and nomsom bambangan (a type of mango pickle). A popular drink is a traditional rice wine called 'tapai'.
