Dayak Women (4)

E-mail Print PDF

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.
