    Dayak Punan Nomadic Rain Forest Dwellers

    Explore the Jungle tribe of Borneo

    The Dayak Punan, as a group of nomadic hunter-gatherers in the jungle of Indonesian Kalimantan of Borneo island, illustrate the development and conservation of the nomadic jungle dwellers as also known as the Penan tribe in Malaysian Sarawak where Mansor the Swiss activist spent years with them to protect this Dayak tribe who has undergone various forms of resettlement in the 20th century. Now-a-days some are now settled in Nort Kalimantan remote locations in the river streams. The Dayak tribe still go wild boar hunting in the rainforest as their traditional life of the hunter-gatherers, while most of them are settled now in small villages where at the same time they reject marginalization and seek integration into the larger society. In short, they want integration without loss of identity, but benefit from educational facilities and basic health care. The collection of forest products from the primary forest as their daily activity has saved the community from intensive logging, and excessive exploitation of local forest products by outsiders and maintain their cultural identity.
