Even some people being hegemony information slaves (hegeformaslaves) by cultural and sadly they do not even realised it.

There is a cultural resistance, adaptation, and acculturation occur. When thinking about the need for a strong cultural identity, the need for redigging, reshaping, and finding again the ancestral identity to be used as construction of new cultural identities as a unifying with the goal of unity, prosperity, happiness and peace in a community.

Thinking "local go global" resulting in a mix of local and global (Locglo). Instead of thinking global-local (Glocal), global tends to intimidate and repress local in the sense that the main priority is global and not local. Locglo is thought that promotes local equivalent to the global.

Dayak in the need of reconstructing a better cultural identity requiring comparative studies with people on the island of Bali that measures future construction design thinking this culture can be projected and used as a cultural construction for the Dayak's new better culture based on humanity and speciesity in achieving the noble values of the ancestors of togetherness, welfare, and peace for Dayak locally and globally.
