Maanyan Dayak community is a sub tribe Dayak in Kalimantan, the which has existed since Hundreds of years ago and even believed to have existed since 242 BC According to the research on the Remains of a royal temple area Nansarunai Amuntai - South Kalimantan. What is the relationship with the royal tribe of Dayak Maanyan Sarunai Nan? Yes there is, is a royal kingdom Nansarunai formed by the Dayak tribe Maanyan. At that time the Dayak tribes still Maanyan the which Inhabit the region is now a part of the province of South Kalimantan.
That maybe Maanyan Dayak tribe lived in the year 242 BC already has a structure of great cultures and Kingdoms, but still being simple.
According to the study of history and the Dayak tribe is a glorious maritime Maanyan age of her. And when it was still inhabited the region at the edge of the sea or rivers near the sea. Even According to specified reliefs in Borobudur temple, the Dayak Maanyan ever sail across the ocean toward Madagascar using outrigger Canoes. Wow super once .... and it will not be trusted by you if you see a Dayak tribe Maanyan currently living away from the maritime tribes.
Earlier the collapse of his kingdom began to receive Nansarunai intimidation of the Various Kingdoms That exist when it is like the kingdom of Srivijaya (Sumatra Island) and Majapahit (Java). And finally in 1355 AD, the kingdom of Nan Sarunai fall and subject to the Majapahit empire under the command of master Jatmika. With the fall of Majapahit kingdom Nansarunai hands of government, the new kingdom was formed to replace the previous eksisan kingdom with the royal name of the State Dipa.
The collapse of the kingdom Nansarunai Make Maanyan Scattered Dayak community and left the area has been a Previously That Land of Their Ancestors. The collapse is also well change some of the culture and customs of the Dayak tribe Maanyan, but Basically the culture of his Ancestors nothing has changed. So until now most of the people and society in general do not know the history and background of Dayak Maanyan actually 180 degrees different from the next life a reality today.
Areas That had been the kingdom Nansarunai today is the South Kalimantan region is inhabited by tribes That banjo is derived from the Descendants of the tribe of Dayak tribe Maanyan with Palembang Malay (Srivijaya). Meanwhile, after the events of "Usak Java" or the destruction of the kingdom Nansarunai Maanyan Dayak tribe, run and Inhabit Various areas in Central Kalimantan as Buntok region, Telang, Patai, Ampah, St. Petersburg, Dayu, Tamiang Layang, and as well as Balawa Various other areas.
And what makes this article interesting Nansarunai the kingdom. Well for some reason when it is proven in research That will change history in Indonesia. But the thing is, to date the study was virtually nil no one cares.

Hunting of flying foxes and perception of disease risk in Indonesian Borneo- New Publications part -2
Hunting of flying foxes and perception of disease risk in Indonesian Borneo- New Publications
In an important paper in press in Biological Conservation (doi10.1016/jbiocon.2011.06.021), Harrison et al describe how questionnaire surveys of hunters and market vendors in Central Kalimantan revealed decreasing availability of flying foxes, from which it can be inferred that populations are declining. This trend looks likely to continue and Kalimantan, like other parts of the Old World tropics, will lose the ecological services that these bats provide. They are purchased for food and in the mistaken belief that their consumption relieves the symptoms of asthma .Hunters and vendors are frequently bitten and are unaware of the risks of contracting diseases from the bats.
This is the first publication from a series of recent research projects in the Old World tropics investigating hunters of bats and other bushmeat species and their vendors and how the supply chain operates. Another has been completed in Ghana with reference to Eidolon helvum and another nears completion in Madagascar. A study in Brazzaville in which I was involved appeared recently in two adjacent papers in the on-line journal Tropical Conservation Science (see Mbete et al 2011,4:187-202 &203-217). The surprising aspect of this study is the absence of bats from the comprehensive list of bushmeat consumed, despite direct evidence of bat consumption in Congo from others sources. So it looks as if the supply chain for bats differs from that for other kinds of bushmeat
