Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the role of Reformasi, or the reform era after the New Order, in Dayak politics and how Dayak politics has evolved since. In order to understand the early development of Dayak politics in West Kalimantan, the chapter discusses how West Kalimantan experienced the political transition and the intensive Dayak political lobbies including responses from the government and the other major ethnic group, the Malays. The decline of inter-ethnic politics as well as the effects of electoral changes on the politics of the Dayaks is examined. The chapter describes the role of NGOs under the umbrella of Pancur Kasih, the main player in Dayak grassroots movements. The objectives of Pancur Kasih according to its statute were to help the government in the area of development, give social assistance, and provide education. The division of the Pontianak district had progressed after the fall of the New Order.
