This series of video files contains the recital of the ritual poetry (rinati) of the Lotud mamanpang (creation myth) in the Sumalud healing ritual by Lotud ritual specialist (tantagas) Puan Pulih Bte Poyon (Odun Gading). The video files have been edited down to remove repetition of the rinati used in the Lotud mamanpang. This cultural documentation was conducted by Judeth John Baptist, and assisted by Lawrence Kating. It took place in September 2021 at Kampung Panjut in the District of Tuaran, Sabah, East Malaysia.
