        Before we get lost in confusion over what does and does not constitute sporting headhunting, let’s just be clear that the Iban are a branch of Borneo’s indigenous Dayak peoples. This sub-group of natives became known as Sea Dayaks to Westerners during the colonial era under the dynasty of James Brooke (), the Rajah of Sarawak. Book Description: The "Hikayat Banjar," a native court chronicle from Borneo, characterizes the irresistibility of natural resource wealth to outsiders as "the banana tree at the gate." Michael R. Dove employs this phrase as a root metaphor to frame the history of resource relations between the indigenous peoples of Borneo and the world system.

      Yet while Charles Hose no doubt carried a blade during the many days and nights he spent living among the peoples of Borneo, this fanatical observer of the cultures of the huge Southeast Asian island was also armed with a subtler colonial weapon: the camera. Hose took many a well-aimed shot, and among his focus were Borneo’s headhunters. Book review by Ka-Neng Au Librarian, OMF International. Mission Round Table Vol 14 no. 1 (Jan-Apr ): The Borneo Evangelical Mission (BEM) was founded in Australia in on principles and values that were inspired by those of the China Inland Mission.

        In fact, the Kayanic peoples had a great impact on northeast Borneo during these several centuries. Having migrated across the central Borneo Massif, they rapidly expanded over the area, including the Kayan basin, which they renamed Kaya:n or Kejin ('our place') (6) in place of its older name of Bulungan (see the oral history in Section 3).   Free Online Library: Ethnohistory of the Kayanic peoples in Northeast Borneo (Part 2): expansion, regional alliance groups, and Segai disturbances in the colonial era.(RESEARCH NOTES, Report) by "Borneo Research Bulletin"; Biological sciences Anthropology, archeology, folklore Regional focus/area studies Acquisition of territory Analysis Ethnic groups History Social aspects Ethnic .
