Among inter-ethnic tradition and culture, there are many similarities and many differences, sometimes itcontradicts one from the other. A real example, in attitude, a woman in Java, especially in Yogya acts with gentleness to show high ethics and respected personality. It’s different with Dayak woman. The condition of nature forms us to be a nimble and energetic woman. The nature as well that forms us to be mamut menteng or brave and never surrender.

The value of Dayak woman in the eyes of tribe community is high. It is so high the appreciation of the tribe to its woman, that the dowry for the wedding cannot be considered as a light matter. Dayak youth are very protective and respectful to the tribe teenage girls. They cannot accept if there is a person that they consider as a stranger enters their territory and teases one of tribe’s girls. Harassing a Dayak woman is identical to harassment to the pride of the tribe and also identical to the challenge for war. All tribe members will be triggered in their anger and will move forward to answer the challenge.

In Dayak tradition, the relation of a child in the family and among relatives either from father or mother side is the same. In reality, it often happens that a husband lives in the same house with his parent-in-law, thus the children will be closer to the family of mother side. However, according to the customary law, the right and obligation is the same. There is no difference since it includes the prohibited matrimony, heritage and obligation.

In dividing heritage, either in the form of material or spiritual and magical power ability, there is no difference. Male or female is the same. The difference is only in its natural function of physical condition between male and female themselves.

In the past, the beauty of Dayak woman is identical to long hair, mamut menteng or bravery also the light from the eyes, all cannot be considered as the focus of beauty. A person is beautiful if one possesses a pure beauty reflected in the inner self from the inside just the way oneself is. Thus, the meaning of beauty is not on the softness of face, the high nose, sexy body and others but mostly the beauty from inside the soul.
