THE DAYAK, IFUGAO, AND NAGA HUMAN SKULLS ARE HEAD HUNTING TROPHIES. THE
ASMAT, VANUATU, AND PALAWAN HUMAN SKULLS ARE CONSIDERED "ANCESTOR"
SKULLS. THE DIFFERENCE IS; HEAD HUNTING SKULLS ARE ACQUIRED FROM ENEMY
VICTIMS WHILE ANCESTOR SKULLS ARE COLLECTED AND VENERATED TO REMEMBER
DECEASED FAMILY MEMBERS. THE IFUGAO ALSO COLLECT BONES OF DEAD RELATIVES,
WRAP THEM IN TRIBAL TEXTILES, AND STORE THEM IN THE RAFTERS UNDER THEIR
HUTS. HUMAN SKULLS AND SKULL CAPS FROM NEPAL ARE RITUAL OFFERTORY
VESSELS THAT ARE USED AS DRINKING CUPS IN TIBETAN BUDDHIST CEREMONIES.
SEVERAL CULTURES HONOR HUMAN SKULLS IN A VARIETY OF WAYS, BUT THEY ALL
CONSIDER HUMAN SKULLS VALUABLE ENTITIES THAT ARE
WORTHY OF PRESERVED COLLECTIONS BUT HUMAN SKULLS,
IN SOME CASES, HAVE BECOME A TRIBE'S PREOCCUPATION!

Monsopiad Cultural Village is based on the Legend of Monsopiad a reknown warrior/headhunter of the Kadazandusun people. The existing house in which the skulls are kept are more popularly known as the “House Of Skulls” and in itself is already a prominent tourist attractions since 1979 and is widely mentioned in tourist brochures and travel guides. The purpose of the village is to provide a conductive venue for visitors both local and international to have a glimpse of the culture of the Kadazandusun people. Once you step into village, you are transported back in time where headhunters and spirit worshippers roamed the land; a place and time when the village was controlled by the Bobohizans (female high priestesses of the Kadazan). The village keeps the culture, beliefs and traditions alive. The Village is run by Monsopiad’s direct descendants and theirs stories will leave a chill down your spine… so vivid they are that it felt as if the warrior is still living amongst them.
Officially, headhunting doesn't exist in Borneo, though isolated jungle beheadings are still reported. In former times, men would awaken the spirit of courage, Bali Akang, to assist them during headhunting expeditions. After decapitating the enemy, great homecoming celebrations awaited returning warriors. The brains were carefully extracted through the nostrils, then fresh ulu (heads) were placed in plaited rattan nets and smoke-cured over fires.
Dried skulls provided the most powerful magic in the world, vital transfusions of energy. A good head could save a village from plague, produce rain, ward off evil spirits, or triple rice yields. Dayak people believed a man's spirit continued to inhabit his head after death. Surrounded by palm leaves, heads were offered food and cigarettes—already lit for smoking—so their spirits would forgive, forget, and feel welcome in their new home. New heads increased the prestige of the owner and impressed sweethearts; they were an initiation into manhood.
In some tribes, a head's powers increased over time; cherished skulls were handed down from generation to generation. In other tribes, a head's magic faded with age, so fresh heads were always needed. Villages without ulu were spiritually weak—easy prey for enemies and pestilence. In remote villages of Kalimantan, travelers still come across skulls—usually not fresh ones

You do not truly know yourself unless you confront yourself in the darkness at three am... no lights to shelter you surrounding you in fake daylight no music to hide the whispers of fear
no moon, no stars, nothing...
With nothing between you and the Dark
you face the demons
in your soul
and see their true face
then, knowing them
they are conquered...
they will conquer you...
are you game
to take that chance?
I have never been as scared in my life
as I was last night...
I raced to seize the torch
to protect myself
I know the dark within
and I do not want to see
it's true face...
the veiled shadows are more than enough
Just thinking about them
sends a chill down my spine
I do not need to see to believe
in the darkness in my soul.
I know it is there...
and I fear
that it is stronger
