Chapter Summary

This chapter explores how Dayak political activities emerged after WWII and how they evolved until the early 1960s. It discusses the opportunities provided to the Dayaks after the end of WWII, analyzing the inclusive policies of post-war governments, the role of individuals within those governments, and the establishment of Dayak institutions that enabled Dayaks to participate in provincial and regional level political arenas. The chapter examines the impact of the dissolution of the pro-Dutch Daerah Istimewa Kalimantan Barat, West Kalimantan Special Region (DIKB) government on Dayak politics, and traces the rise of Dayaks in local politics as a result of the victory of the (Partai) Persatuan Dayak, Dayak Unity Party (PD) in the 1955 and 1958 elections.
