Dayaks

The dayaks or the dayak people are the indigenous population of Borneo.

The term Dayak loosely refers to about 200 hill-dwelling and riverine ethnic subgroups, located primarily in the interior of Borneo.

Each subculture has its own dialect, laws, customs, territory and culture although there are common distinguishing traits noticeable between the groups. The total population of Dayaks is currently believed to be from 2 to 4 million people.
