This study is on narrative analysis of the Bidayuh folktales or dondan. This study aims to analyse the narrative structure of dondan by using a structural analysis framework. This study also analyzes the figurative languages in these dondan and the common phrases used in folktales were also being analyzed. These dondan were audio-recorded from two elders in Kampung Sibang, Bau, a Bidayuh Jagoi area. The results showed that the dondan is portrayed on how the traditional Bidayuh people viewed their world and analysis the narrative structure of the dondan was rather straightforward with usage of culturally related figurative languages. The findings suggest that the dondan have their own unique characteristics, which are closely related to the lives of the Bidayuh.
