Dayak people in Sabah and Sarawak continue to uphold tribal affinity, while in Central Kalimantan, 'imported' religion is a problem.
Borneo Dayak Forum International president Jeffrey Kitingan says the indigenous people have been indoctrinated with the divide and rule mentality for generations.
International Dayak congress also proposes that Borneo Island be renamed Dayak Island.
The tribe's traditional government, representing populations in three countries, has appointed Sabahan Andrew Ambrose for the job.
The Borneo Dayak Forum says such representation can give the Dayak people a voice on the world stage and help protect and preserve their ways, while contributing to cultural tourism.
For the first time in their history, the Borneo Dayak Forum is giving the indigenous community recognition as one people, despite their different geographical locations and nationalities.
