russian road ?

Asphalt road was straight and smooth. There was no shock when the car sped on it. This is different from the trans-Kalimantan road from Nunukan, East Kalimantan, to Palangkaraya, Central Kalimantan, which is full of holes and bumpy.
Locals know it as a road path-Tangkiling Palangkaraya. However, Gardea Samsudin (70) remember him as the Russian Road.
Samsudin, male from Bandung, West Java, is a little piece of witnesses is left of the road along the 34 kilometers with a width of 6 meters was built by engineers from Russia, first of The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Along with dozens of Dayak, Samsudin and hundreds of other Java people working under the direction of dozens of Russian engineers. "I'm preparing the stones that became the foundation of this road," said Samsudin who is now settled in Palangkaraya.
Not easy to find other witnesses Russian road construction that want to talk. Sabran Achmad (80), Central Kalimantan, community leaders, said, many workers who helped build the Russian Road to hide. It can not be separated from the politics of the New Order which gives a black stigma to something that smells of the Old Order. And, the road built by Russian engineers were indeed derived from the Sukarno era, which is close to the Eastern Bloc countries was in 1950 until the 1960s.
"The road was built to mark the construction of the City of Palangkaraya. Previously, the road was a dense forest. Trees was this magnitude, "he said as he wrapped his arms Sabran.
Sukarno's dream
In the beginning was swinging an ax President Soekarno on a chip of wood in Pahandut, Kampung Dayak, in the heart of Borneo, July 17, 1957. A chip of wood split marks a new urban development that dreamed of Sukarno. The new city was later given the name of Palangkaraya, which means a holy place, noble, and sublime, which is designed as the capital of Indonesia Raya.
However, Sukarno dreams never come true. Palangkaraya is simply a capital of Central Kalimantan Province, dark and lackluster due to power shortage.
Designed as the nation's capital, Palangkaraya originally built with a clear concept. There is a grouping function that separates the functions of government buildings, commercial, and residential. The landscapes are designed to integrate land and river transportation.
Kahajan the orientation center in the northern city. A road was built in the city center toward the direction of Sampit. That road is now called the Road of Russia, the best national road all the way through which the trans-Kalimantan Borneo Cruising Compass Team with the Department of Public Works (PU). "We never again build a road as good as Russia is still smooth road despite decades. Look, other roads in Kalimantan newly built quickly once broken, "said Wibowo, Public Works Department staff member of the Regional Betterment Office VII Banjarmasin.
Digging peat
A piece of road was a witness proficiency Russian engineers to build roads in a very different soil conditions in their home countries. Sabran recounts, all the way dredged peat at the site. "After the peat dredged, created flow like a river. Then, the path filled with stone, sand, and solid ground, "said Sabran.
Tangkiling  mountain

On December 17, 1962, Russia completed the construction of road foundation. In later years, living installing drainage, hardening, and paving. Work is slow, but the results are excellent.
However, the planned road construction along the 175 kilometers through Parenggean then to Pangkalan Bun Sampit and then connecting the ports of Palangkaraya with river leading to the termination of this Java early in 1966. When the newly built road 34 km.
The change of power in post-Movement 30 September 1965 makes the Russian people rushed to leave Indonesia. All project workers do not want to hide myself because disangkutpautkan with Russia, the Communist Party of Indonesia, or even Sukarno.
Russian road construction story was finished. Everything smelled of Russia removed, including road building science engineer who taught them in joint-Tangkiling Palangkaraya. Road construction in Kalimantan never again start with dredge peat. However, enough with the foundation of Galam timber that is attached in peatlands that (the foundation is known as cerucuk). Road construction to be cheaper and faster, but road construction is not durable.
Head of Highways Department of Public Works Ridwan Manurung said Central Kalimantan Province, in theory, Palangkaraya joint Russian-built Tangkiling it is true. "We opened the road alignment, must be considered the basic soil structure, foundation, and the cover layer. If there is soil humus, should be replaced with sand, soil solids, or granite. Any deep peat, should be discarded, "he said.
According Wibowo, road construction with Russian technique that will cost three times more expensive than the technique performed by cerucuk, as we now make. "However, the age of the road with the Russian technique that can be five times higher than our ways," he said.

In the days of yore, in the interior forests of Central Kalimantan, especially in Botanical Joyless forest, live many kinds of animals. But unique, these animals could speak like a human.
As noted above, there lived a sparrow named Ampit. These sparrows are women and in those days was growing up. Life is very poor sparrows, where this bird lived alone, foraging alone even make sarangpun alone. This sparrow is closed once, where he is far from the village animals in the forest. Sparrow is actually eager to live in the middle of the forest community, but unfortunately he did not dare because his fur is very ugly without the slightest hue.
At one time, when the sparrow is to plant rice seed in his field, there came a sparrow the other, once diaman exquisite fur. This sparrow is a traveler, whose primary goal is to find a mate. Male sparrow is named Ampat. When first met, Ampit sensed there was something else his heart, so is the Ampat is not much different from the Ampit. Some second time this bird glued to each other, without a word and sound, silence. . . !
With a full smile and friendliness, the Ampat greet the Ampit with gentle words said. Ampat explained to the Ampit that he was hungry because it had been 2 days without food. So, Ampitpun bring the Ampat to its nest to prepare food and beverages. In the evening, he asked the Ampit Ampat about his life, and also about everyday. Maybe because it feels right, in the morning two of these sparrows come to "Damang" in the forest. At that time, the position Damang on hold by deer. After deliberation by all citizens of the forest, then ditentukanlah good day for a wedding Ampit and this Ampat.
Arrived on the appointed day, all citizens hutanpun Kancil came to the house to celebrate the marriage Ampit and Ampat. At the banquet, all the undanganpun sit neatly. When the Bears want to take the food, everything scold Bear. Because the hands and nails and a long black bear, then the Bear was also told to wash his hands in the back. When finished washing his hands, Beruangpun come to pick up food. But once again his hand on hold by an ape, and was told again washed his hands to the back. Thus, it continues to happen, to the extent that food and beverages out there was no rest. Bear was very upset and ran into the woods, crying, Bear is vengeance upon all the inhabitants of the forest because the Bears considered all stingy and not pleased with himself.
So that this problem does not continue anymore, then came to the nest Damang Bear and all the forest dwellers to ask for Sorry, and also explains the problem sits. Damang with great charisma and commanding also explained to the Bears, that assumption is addressed to them all that's not true. Init problem is that the nails and bear arms can not be white, while they all do not know that hands and nails can not bear to be white. Because it is by nature a black bear from head to toe. It's all a misunderstanding, between Bear and forest residents. After hearing it all, Bear was conscious and did not hurt anymore. With a full smile, Bear also shook hands with all citizens of the forest and also forgave all of them. 

We return to Ampit and Ampat. After marriage, the two of them returned to the nest. Everyday they are both farming and also opened a new land. After years of living together, the pair also missed the sparrows are sweet and cute kids. So, pamitlah Ampat to his wife to be imprisoned in the mountains Bondang. His wife could not resist the Ampat, because her husband has been rounded and embroidery can not be contested again. With tears, Ampit also releasing her husband's departure with a heavy heart.
Several years ago, laying the Ampit this. But oddly enough, the egg that came out it was just a course. With great affection, the Ampit keep this egg with patience and also full of tenderness. Because he was alone, it is unlikely he will continue to keep the eggs constantly. Especially in the barn where the rice is low, then the Ampit reluctantly departs into the fields to grow rice. In the afternoon, Ampit return to the nest to prepare for the needs of these egg. But Ampit surprised, because in the nest had no eggs. With a heavy heart and go to pieces, fly home Ampit Damang to tell this incident. After hearing all the stories Ampit Damang, then in kumpulnya all forest dwellers.
What a surprise this Damang, after further careful snakes just are not coming. So Damang with all citizens of the forest was soon off to a nest of snakes, when we get there Damang then asked the snake why not come to the house of the Damang. The answer is very short snake once, that he was tired san glut so not able to walk into the house Damang. Damang and other residents became suspicious because in the vicinity of the snake there is no trace of blood, or feathers and bones of its prey. So Damang directly asked the serpent is, is it true that swallowed him sparrow eggs? Ularpun immediately angry and denies it all, in hamburkannya able to Damang and forest residents. Because they are threatened, they ran away all the snakes out of the nest.
Seeing it all, cry these sparrows. When the tears fall, so the water after reaching the soil surface. When the tears fall again, the water in the soil surface had a four inch height. And so on, until the snake was drowned and dead. After the water receded, the Snake has been destroyed, just behind sparrow eggs left in her abdomen. With a joyous heart, Ampit was swiftly taken and brought to the nest egg. From then on, Ampit always keep their eggs with a full alert. Because he did not want a similar incident will happen again, it is enough to experience it all worthwhile. To be more loving and more profound sense of the warmth of true affection. 

A few months later, menetaslah egg. So Break these Ampit child cry because of hunger, fly the Ampit to the barn to take a rice paddy. But unfortunately, all the rest is up there. So Ampitpun persuade his son to be quiet, and go the Ampit this to the fields to harvest rice. Not long after, this Ampit children wept as she said "plit-plit henna, I jeer germ ongku bo" which means it is I want to eat rice. "Patience my son, be patient" said the Ampit this. Not long after, he returned to the nest with this Ampit carrying rice. Arriving at the nest, with great affection in the rice give it to her child. Because too many children eat the rice, then this Ampit bengkaklah child's abdomen. Every day every night is always crying, because her stomach hurt. Therefore, this Ampit then departed the home Damang for help heal his disease. After the specified day, then went Damang and other forest residents to nest Ampit. We perform the Balian with Wasirnya is deer, not long after the child was healed this Ampit. After Balian is completed, then kumpulah all to eat. When all was eating, a dog came into the house of the Ampit. Mean heart wants to see Balian, but unfortunately it was too late. When the dog climbed into the nest Ampit, all the animals that exist in the guffaw. The dog becomes confused and surprised, and laughed Anjingpun bandwagon even though he did not know what actually laughed at her friends. Feeling sorry for the dog, then whisper Kancil that they were laughing at himself because he was naked and his cock all the tools visible. Hearing all that, then the dog is angry. Chased all the animals and laid abriknyalah all the nests of other forest animals. Sa'at dog was chasing hare, then in the sumpahinyalah Dogs. Any dog ​​whose name is on sa'at chasing deer would die, because dogs do not know the name of reciprocation and gratitude.
Several years later, he returned from the mountain Bondang Ampat out imprisoned. What a happy heart sa'at met his beloved wife and also met her beloved son even though he saw for the first time. And they lived happily until the end.

Maybe nobody ever knew what it was tiwah, may also exist that do not know or never even heard tiwah.
The word comes from the language tiwah Sangiang, Sangiang language is the language used by one of religion in Central Kalimantan, namely Hinduism Kaharingan. Sangiang language usually used by Hindu religious leaders Kaharingan to lead a religious ceremony. Tiwah ceremony by the community of Central Kalimantan in general assume that tiwah was a custom, but according to Hindu society Kaharingan tiwah is the process of delivering souls or in the language Dayaknya Liau into heaven or in the language Sangiangnya deliver to "Lewu Tatau Habaras Bulau Hagusung Intan He hiatus Bones
", which means a place of eternal or immortal, and the place was decorated with gold, jewels, diamonds, etc.. 

tiwah1 TIWAH?

Liau or spirit here is divided into 3 parts, namely:

1. Balawang length, for example such as hair or nails.
2. Karahang bones, eg bones.
3. Haring Kaharingan Liau is a real ghost or spirit.
The ceremony was led by Basir tiwah or Pisur. Basir is someone who has the ability to lead the ceremony - a Hindu religious ceremony Kaharingan particularly in the area Kahayan Kaharingan Hindu. Pisur that is the same as Basir but Pisur leading Hindu religious ceremony Kaharingan in the Katingan region. In general ceremony led by Basir relatively longer range of 2 months from the ceremony on Pimping by Pisur.
Ceremony tiwah generally done 5 years, but according to a family agreement that would malakukan tiwah ceremony. According to Hindu religion Kaharingan tiwah should be implemented for a sense of responsibility to the spirit and aims to deliver the spirit or Liau into Lewu Tatau (heaven). Tiwah ceremony could also be an interesting visit religious tourism.
According to Hindu religious belief Kaharingan, humans come from the descendants of King Bunu that led the way back to Ranying Hatalla Heaven (God Almighty).
Who is the King Bunu?
King Bunu was the son of the couple Manyamei Tunggul Garing Janjahunan Sea and Kameloh Putak Bulau janjulen Authorship Batu Kamasan blanket Tambun (really long name!). Crisp and Kameloh Tunggul Manyamei Putak Bulau is according to Hindu Kaharingan are human beings first created by Ranying Hatalla Heaven (God). And King Bunu memeng bequeathed to inhabit the earth with - typical features of their offspring could be dead or dying after a descent into the ninth. - Typical features of the other was King Bunu can not host, then changed his food was changed to rice, side dishes - dishes, etc.. As our food today.
King Bunu in anugrahi by Ranying Hatalla Heaven (God), an iron (Sanaman Lenteng). Sanaman Lenteng is an iron accidentally discovered by King Bunu when he played d river with his two brothers. The two brothers of King Bunu that each - each named King Sangen and King Sangiang. Iron is found by the three siblings was "strange", because that one end of the iron arising out of the water and the other drowned. If in a strange analogy, should the iron rod was submerged. King Bunu accidentally hold one end of Sanaman Lenteng who drowned and his two brothers hold one end of which arise out of the water, so that by his account because of King Bunu not deliberately holding the tip of a submerged Sanaman Lenteng, then life is not eternal like the other two brothers, Sangen, King and King Sangiang. Iron that they found it eventually made into boards Dohong Fortress (a type of tool that looks like a typical knife) by their father.
King Bunu and his two brothers also awarded by Ranying Hatalla sky a bird named Elephant Bakapek Bulau Camel Away Barikur Hintan walloping. They were awarded a bird when they were disebuah hill called Bukit Engkan buffer.
When they had found the bird, apparently of three brothers that no one wants to budge and continued to scramble to get the bird. - Then the king Sangen wielding dohongnya ago menghujamkannya toward the bird. Sehingg, the bird's blood came out and King Sangen took the initiative to hold the blood of the bird into a sangku (a bowl). And with a flash of blood is collected in the bird that was changed mneenjadi sangku gold, diamonds, and jewels.

Apparently, the siblings' father knows his son's third perrbuatan. So, with spiritual power, his father went to see her three children were. When I got there Manyamei Tunggul Crisp (their father) to see what has been done by his son because the father felt sorry for the bird and scared her three children "damned" by Ranying Hatalla Heaven for the actions of children - his son, the father was the spiritual power to heal wounds bird.
Because his eye on his brother who got the gold, diamond, etc. it. Thus, King was menghujamkan dohongnya Sangiang toward the bird so the bird's blood came out with a swift and he was doing the same thing that took its sangku to accommodate the bird's blood. It was also exactly the same as that obtained by King Sangen namely, gold, diamonds, etc.. And their father was finally heal the wounds on the bird. Thus, the bird was healthy again.
And again - again greed and envy that descend King Bunu. He also did what has been done by both his brother and he was getting the same results as obtained by the two brothers. And again - again the father was because he felt sorry for the bird's will to heal wounds and he made the bird. But apparently the bird's wound can not heal as usual. Eventually the bird flew with a wound and blood dripping wet areas it. Blood was dripping bird which became abundant wealth. Because the bird's physical condition is getting tired and the wound was getting worse, the bird was finally dead.
Finally, place the bird's death was filled with the eternal riches, and according to Hindu religious belief Kaharingan place called Lewu Tatau (Heaven).

Tradition Long Ears

CALL tattoo art, many tribes in the archipelago that has this tradition such as the Dayak tribe, Mentawai, and Papua. However, the tradition of long ears, only the Dayak tribe in Kalimantan, which has a tradition of this unique and special. That was not all Dayak tribes, but only a few subsuku certain Dayak.
EVEN become one of the characteristics or identity that is very prominent as the original inhabitants of Kalimantan, but the tradition is now even more abandoned. Even if there are to survive, only a small proportion of the older generation Dayak groups aged over 60 years.
Apart from very few in number, those who come from long-eared leaves the end of deliberately cutting their ears. The reason that is often noted, the fear of being out of date or worry their kids feel ashamed.
According to anthropologist Mering Ngo, who also comes from the Dayak tribe, if a traditional Dayak tattoos now evolved into modern tattoo art, tradition long ears even more submerged and abandoned. There are no young people today who carry on this tradition, even though in the interior of Borneo, with a variety of reasons.
"Just me just who made the long ears. Seventh my child, one whose ear was no longer made," said Pejung (82), citizen Kayan Dayak tribe whose ear is made up of about 15 centimeters long.
"I'm sorry if my children will be ashamed and ridicule. In fact, long ears must begin to do since I was a baby," added Pejung.
According Mering Ngo, besides there is no successor to preserve the tradition of long ears, nor do all groups or subsuku Dayak of Kalimantan have long ears of this tradition. In West Kalimantan, for example, the tradition of long ears, among others, known only among the Dayak Iban, Kayan, Parks, and Dayak Punan. This tradition was mostly only applicable in rural areas as in Kapuas Hulu.
A long ears is not only done on women, but also in men. Making long ears are usually done since she was a baby. The objective, according to Mering Ngo, associated with the classification of one's social strata in society.
In the Dayak Kayan, for example, making long ears showed people were from the nobility.
As for making the long ears on women shows he was a nobleman at once to distinguish the women who become slaves because of losing the war or unable to pay debts.
Another with the villages in the Upper Mahakam River. Ear length is used as an identity to show one's age. Once the baby is born, the tip of the ear beads given enough weight. Each year, the number of beads attached to the ear grow one.
"Therefore, if you want to know the age of a person, can be seen from the number of beads attached to the ear. If the number is 60, then age must be 60 years since the installation of the bead can not be done haphazardly, just once a year," said Jacobus Bayau Lung , Chairman of the East Kalimantan Dayak II Fellowship.
The purpose of making the long ears was not to show the status of nobility, but rather to exercise patience. "Just imagine, how hard beads that hung on the ear. But, as it is used every day, patience and a sense of their suffering to be trained," said Bayau Lung.
Meanwhile, among the Dayak Kayan, for a long ears, ears are usually given a ballast of metal circular ring-shaped kazoos or small size. With this ballast will continue elongated earlobe up to several centimeters.
While the Dayak Iban, not given such weight, but only allowed to look like a big hole like if we make the number zero by integrating the tip of the thumb with the tip of the index finger.
In Sungai Dusun Utik, Apan Village, District Embaloh Hulu, Kabupaten Kapuas Hulu, for example, found a Dayak Iban named Tuba.
The old man was aged around 68 years elongate ears around the 60's when migrated to Sarawak and Brunei Darussalam. There he was in addition to lengthening the ears also make a tattoo on the neck, arm and thigh.
Customary Law Professors Tanjungpura University Prof. Dr. John Cyprian Thambun Anyang states, the tradition of long ears Dayak Iban Dayak Park is almost equal to that do not provide ballast.
"In the Garden Dayak, long ears tradition was not associated with certain social strata. This tradition is especially for women only as keperempuanannya identity," said an expert of this customary law.
But, said Thambun, this tradition has been abandoned Taman Dayak community. "My mother just exactly as it comes to Pontiac when it asked for the tip cut off ears for fear that their children will be embarrassed," he said.
According Thambun, elongate ear is just one tradition of decorating the body. The tradition of other Dayak tribe is to make the tattoo and put gold teeth. However, the three traditions of decorating the body, the only tattoo that still survive despite the loss of its spiritual meaning. While making the long ears and put the gold tooth had been left behind.
"The tradition of installing gold teeth for the Dayak Park to show the relevant already wander far, for a nice gold teeth only in Sarawak and Brunei Darussalam," he said.
Starting when the tradition was abandoned long ears?
According Mering, it is not known exactly, but it is expected the same with the tradition of the tattoo when I started the entry of missionaries into remote areas in the Dayak village in the Dutch colonial era first.
This tradition was further eroded out during a confrontation between Indonesia and Malaysia in Kalimantan border area. It was developed stigma in society, those who leaved long ears and live in long houses, inhabited by several families, a community group that is not modern. Not resistant to such views, eventually some people cut off the ear length.
The stigma of this kind continued until now. Dayak among the younger generation no longer willing to make long ears for fear of being considered obsolete and not modern.
Only a minority of the Dayak people who still adhere to the tradition of ear leaf length, and even then the amount is very minimal.

Pangkalima Burung

In the Dayak community, it is believed there is a creature which was mentioned very great, magical, knight, and authoritative. The figure is said to inhabit the mountains in the interior of Borneo, intersect with the supernatural. Spiritual leader, warlord, teachers, and elders who glorified. Dayak is pangkalima war, Pangkalima Bird, called by the Dayak pedalaman.Ada Pangkalima lot version of the story about this figure, especially after his name sticking out during the riots Sambas and Sampit. Someone said he had lived for hundreds of years old and lived on the border between West Kalimantan and Central Kalimantan. There is also news about Bird Pangkalima tangible occult and may take the form of men or women depending on the situation. Also on Bird Pangkalima figure which is a Dayak community leaders who have gone, but his spirit may be invited to communicate through a ritual. Until the story that he was the incarnation of the hornbills, birds that are considered sacred and holy in Kalimantan. 

In addition to the many versions of the story, in parts of Kalimantan, also there are many people who claim to be Pangkalima Bird, either in Tarakan, Sampit, or Pontiac. But any claim that only believed in three different ways: some who believe, there is no trust, and there is hesitation. There is no authentic proof that ensure one of them is really true Pangkalima Bird.
There are so many outstanding issues and stories, but there is one version which I think is very fitting to describe what and who it is Pengkalima Bird. He is a figure that illustrates the Dayak people in general. Pangkalima Bird is the symbol of the Dayaks. Whether it's nature, its practices, and everything about him.
Then how can a bird Pangkalima, how could he represent the Dayak? In addition to powerful and invulnerable, Pangkalima Bird also is the figure as a cool, calm, patient, and do not like making trouble. This corresponds to the typical Dayak people are also friendly and patient, sometimes even shy. Quite hard to persuade rural Dayak people to want to be photographed, sometimes have to present the benefits of clove cigarettes.
And the reality on the ground breaking all the stereotypes of the Dayak as a cruel, vicious, and violent. In public life, the Dayaks can be spelled quite shy, still receive the newcomers with a good, and always maintain the integrity of the cultural heritage of both religion and ritual. As Bird Pengkalima be patient and remain calm which inhabit inland Dayak community too much to give in when loggers and gold miners into their territory.
Although still firmly holds the teachings of the ancestors, the conflict never existed when there are members of the society are turning to these religions brought by the settlers. Boisterous no tension in the room turned into a scope-which by the Dayak Ngaju called Danum Kaharingan yet.
Simplicity was identical with the figure of Pangkalima Bird. Although the figure is celebrated, he does not reside in a luxurious palace or building. He was hiding and meditated in the mountains and merge with nature. Inland Dayak community has never concerned with the nominal value of money. Newcomers can easily berbarter goods such as coffee, salt, or cigarettes with them.
Bird told Pangkalima rarely shows itself, because it is not like to show off the power. Likewise Dayaks, who are not haphazardly into the city with a saber, chopsticks, or arrows. These weapons are generally used for hunting in the woods, and the saber was not removed from kumpang (sarong) if no subject is important or urgent.
So where is the culture of violence and fury of the Dayaks who was widely discussed, and feared it? There was one case Pangkalima Bird down the mountain, that is when after continuous patient and his patience was exhausted. Pangkalima bird indeed a very patient person, but if the limit of patience had crossed the line, the case will be different. He will turn into a pemurka. It's really a perfect depiction of the Dayak people are friendly, shy, and patient, but will turn very vicious and cruel if it is his patience has run out.
Bird Pangkalima that wrath will soon go down the mountain and gather his forces. Ritual-which in the West Kalimankan called Red Bowl-made to collect from saentero Kalimantan Dayak warriors. War dances bersahut-replication, saber firmly attached at the waist. Those who had been the people who are very good will look hideous. The smile on her face disappeared, replaced by malignant eyes like hypnotized. They are ready for war, mengayau-cut off and bring the enemy's head. This is what happened in the town of Sampit a few years ago, when beheadings occur almost everywhere in every corner of the city.
Though cruel and ferocious in anger, as well as Bird Pengkalima Dayak people still hold fast to the norms and rules which they believe. Among others, it does not pollute the sanctity of places of worship of any religion-with-damaging or killing in it.
Because violence in the Dayak placed as the last option, when patience has run out and the way of peace can no longer be reached, it is in their viewpoint. Murder, and activity mengayau, in their little hearts could not be done, but because it pushed to the last option and to change what they think is wrong, it had to be done. This is the actual culture of violence is to be feared.
Mystery is very identical to the Dayaks. Fierce and cruel stereotypes still attached. It's not all good, because there are many shortcomings and mistakes. What's more violence, whatever the form and reason-whether it's revenge, economic, social inequality, and others-still can not be justified. Eye for an eye will only lead to blindness for all. Apart from all kinds of legends and myths, or whether or not a real character, Pangkalima Bird for me is the figure of a true symbol of the Dayaks.
