The People - Custom and Culture

The population of Kalimantan can be divided into two major groups - the natives or indigenous people, and those migrated from other places around Borneo and Asia.   Like their cousins in the other regions of Borneo, the people of Kalimantan also consists of many ethnic groups with distinct customs and cultures.  The original inhabitants of Kalimantan, the "Orang Gunung" or hill people, is reported to have resided in East Kalimanatan.  Although they are collectively referred to as the Dayaks, most of these 'tribes' preferred to be identified by seperate tribal names such as Banjarese, Ibans, Punans, and Banuaqs.  The newcomers consist of the Chinese, Arabs, Bugis, Bajaus, Javanese, Madurese, and others.
