DAYAK TRIBE: HEAD HUNTING HUMAN TROPHY SKULL #24
HAND CARVED HUMAN BONE, BAMBOO


Young Dayak men are warriors who are expected to defend their villages
against neighboring tribes. After defeating an enemy, the Dayak behead
them and display those skulls as trophies in their communal "long" houses.

Headhunting was an important part of Dayak culture, in particular to the Iban
and Kenyah. There used to be a tradition of retaliation for old headhunts,
which kept the practice alive. External interference by the reign of the
Brooke Rajahs in Sarawak and the Dutch in Kalimantan Borneo curtailed
and limited this tradition. Apart from massed raids, the practice of headhunting
was then limited to individual retaliation attacks or the result of chance
encounters. Early Brooke Government reports describe Dayak Iban and
Kenyah War parties with captured enemy heads. At various times, there
have been massive coordinated raids in the interior, and throughout coastal
Borneo, directed by the Raj during Brooke's reign in Sarawak. This may
have given rise to the term, Sea Dayak, although, throughout the 19th Century,
Sarawak Government raids and independent expeditions appeared to have been
carried out as far as Brunei, Mindanao, East coast Malaya, Jawa and Celebes.
Tandem diplomatic relations between the Sarawak Government (Brooke Rajah)
and Britain (East India Company and the Royal Navy) acted as a pivot and a
deterrence to the former's territorial ambitions, against the Dutch
administration in the Kalimantan regions and client sultanates.

THE DAYAK TRIBE, FROM BORNEO ISLAND
INDONESIA, CARVE DESIGNS INTO THE SKULLS
OF THEIR HEADHUNTED VICTIMS AND INSERT WOODEN FIGURES.


THE DAYAK, IFUGAO, AND NAGA HUMAN SKULLS ARE HEAD HUNTING TROPHIES.
THE ASMAT
, VANUATU, AND PALAWAN HUMAN SKULLS ARE CONSIDERED
"ANCESTOR"  SKULLS. THE DIFFERENCE IS; HEAD HUNTED SKULLS
ARE ACQUIRED FROM ENEMY
VICTIMS!

ANCESTOR SKULLS ARE COLLECTED AND VENERATED TO REMEMBER

 DECEASED FAMILY MEMBERS. THE IFUGAO COLLECT BONES OF DEAD
RELATIVES; WRAP THEM IN TRIBAL TEXTILES, AND STORE THEM IN THE
RAFTERS UNDER THEIR  HUTS. HUMAN SKULLS AND SKULL CAPS FROM
NEPAL ARE RITUAL OFFERTORY VESSELS THAT ARE USED AS
DRINKING CUPS IN TIBETAN BUDDHIST CEREMONIES.
