20 To 21 June 2015
The Dayak Cultural Festival hosted by Sarawak Dayak Graduates Association (SDGA) in collaboration with Dayak National Congress (DNC) was held from 20 – 21 June 2015. The inaugural two day event could be seen as a melting pot for all Dayak communities in Borneo. It was also a platform for these communities to foster resilient relationship with one another through their rich culture and tradition. Delegates came from Sarawak, West Kalimantan and Sabah.
“It is vital to preserve the identity of the Dayak culture and tradition, which is being threatened by modernisation. If this is neglected, the identity of the Dayak would be lost over time, ” said SDGA president Dr. Dusit Jaul during a dinner themed “One Dayak One Borneo” at Dayak Bidayuh National Association (DBNA) Hall on Saturday, 20 June 2015 which was held in conjunction with the festival.
