Abstract

ABSTRACT

 The issue of this article is the intercultural marriage among the Sino-Kadazan community that took place before the formation of Malaysia in 1963 in Sabah. Among the challenges faced is that the status of their identity is often disputed. This article also looks at the personality of this community as well as their habits in the family culture such as in the aspects of communication language, beliefs, nutrition and choice of residence. The aim of this study is to answer the question posed that is whether intercultural marriages such as the Sino-Kadazan community will create a harmonious relationship or the existence of problems such as conflicts in cultures? This study uses a qualitative method, which is to conduct in -depth interviews and observations to the homes of five respondents. To further strengthen the data of this study, secondary sources were also used. The location setting is done in several areas around Kota Kinabalu which have Sino-Kadazan ethnicity. The concepts used are to understand the issue in more depth and relate it to the data obtained. This study has shown that society is able to adapt to the existing culture and accept it as their identity. This article is produced to enhance the community's understanding of inter -racial relations through intermarriage or culture, especially in the state of Sabah and in general in Malaysia. The hope for this study is that the gap between cultural differences can be bridged and in turn society will pay more attention to the issue.

 

ABSTRAK

Isu artikel ini ialah perkahwinan antara budaya dalam kalangan masyarakat Sino-Kadazan yang berlaku sebelum pembentukan Malaysia 1963 di Sabah. Antara cabaran yang dihadapi ialah kedudukan status identiti mereka sering dipertikaikan. Artikel ini turut melihat pada keperibadian komuniti ini serta kebiasaan mereka dalam budaya berkeluarga seperti dalam aspek bahasa komunikasi, kepercayaan, pemakanan dan pemilihan tempat tinggal. Matlamat kajian ini adalah untuk menjawab persoalan yang dikemukakan iaitu adakah perkahwinan antara budaya seperti komuniti Sino-Kadazan akan mewujudkan hubungan yang harmoni atau wujudnya permasalahan seperti konflik dalam budaya? Kajian ini menggunakan kaedah kualitatif, iaitu melakukan temu bual secara mendalam dan pemerhatian ke rumah lima orang responden. Untuk memperkukuhkan lagi data kajian ini, sumber sekunder juga turut digunakan. Latar lokasi dilakukan di beberapa kawasan sekitar Kota Kinabalu yang mempunyai etnik Sino-Kadazan. Konsep-konsep yang digunakan adalah untuk memahami isu dengan lebih mendalam dan mengaitkannya dengan data yang diperolehi. Kajian ini telah memperlihatkan masyarakat mampu menyesuaikan diri dengan budaya yang wujud dan menerimanya sebagai identiti mereka. Artikel ini dihasilkan untuk  mempertingkatkan pengertian masyarakat tentang hubungan antara kaum melalui perkahwinan campur atau budaya  khususnya di negeri Sabah dan secara amnya di negara Malaysia. Harapan untuk kajian ini ialah jurang perbezaan antara budaya boleh dirapatkan dan seterusnya masyarakat akan lebih menitikberatkan isu tersebut.
