This section presents all the patterns of earweights by the tribes in Asia, mainly Borneo. The Dayaks are former head hunters warriors and the original “wild men of Borneo.” They continued to practice headhunting after it was outlawed by the Dutch in the 19th century. Up until World War II most of them were river-dwelling head hunters. Now many have been Christianized and forced into settlements. They were the original inhabitants of Borneo. However, they are now greatly outnumbered by Malays and Indonesians. It is believed that most Dayaks lived along the coast until they were driven inland after the arrival of the Malays. Here, we are going to explain earweights of the dayak warriors.
