The person who called the Dayak was just there in Borneo, is why they are called Dayak or "The Dayak" in Borneo generally means "The Outback" a distant and detached from the city life.
Formerly it was. Everywhere there are Dayak tribal settlements. They always move to one other area, where they live if there was someone from another tribe who also live or open a township near the area they live.
Called 'Dayak' means not only to one tribe, but a variety such as the Dayak Kenyah, Hiban Dayak tribe, tribe Dayak Tunjung, Bahau Dayak tribe, tribe Dayak Continent, Basaf Dayak and Punan Dayak who was also accompanied by dozens of "Uma" (child's tribe) and scattered in various regions of Borneo.
In the period before the 20th century, overall this Dayak tribes do not recognize Christianity and Islam. That is on them is the belief in ancestors, animals, stones rock, as well as innate natural cues ancient Hindu belief. In everyday life they believe any restrictions that the sign is given by nature. Prohibition in the life of the Dayak community there are only two. That is so taboo that brought freedom to multiply their population and some are due to restrictions resulting population becomes less and now they even almost extinct. As example of life that should never be mingled with other people of their tribe.
Abstinence makes their life is not always calm and always on the move to move. So that their lives have never advanced even tends to add primitive. For example, such as the Punan Dayak tribe. Interest on this one hard to communicate with the public. Most of them live in dense forests, caves in the rocks and mountains that are difficult to reach. Actually it is not their fault. But because of cultural taboos ancestors who did not dare they violate such a circumstance occurs. This is actually the fault of their ancestors.
In the history or story, their ancestors are its origins come from the land called "Yunan" a region of mainland China. They came from the royal family of one of China's lost battle which then ran along the boats, so getting to the ground island of Borneo. Because they feel safe, they then settled on the mainland. However, perhaps due to the trauma of war, they were afraid to meet with any community groups. They worry about the massacre and the war over again so that they can be depleted or extinct no trace. That's why their ancestors carried out the prohibition and abstinence meet with people who are not from among them.
Indeed in the 13th century, the Chinese mainland was full of conflict and war between the kings of the ruling to determine one of the great empire that controlled the whole of mainland China. Due to not succumb to each other, then there was war among themselves to determine where the greatest empire and rule the whole of mainland China. (Http://banuadayak.wordpress.com)
