Who is Kanang Langkau?


I first know there is an Iban soldier named Kanang Langkau [more about the national hero] in mid 80s because of a huge portrait of him was hung in a hall at the Royal Military College.

He was awarded with the Malaysia highest award, the Seri Pahlawan Gagah Perkasa and Panglima Gagah Berani medals from the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Sultan Ahmad Shah on 3 June 1981.

Many Ibans were awarded with Seri Pahlawan Gagah Perkasa for their bravery in the military and police services.

There are five Chinese in the Seri Pahlawan Gagah Perkasa honorary list too in case Perkasa accuses Chinese are pendatang.

Sadly we do not see any more Iban warriors as they have all been subdued by Umno.
