Simple Learnings from Simple Earnings: Lessons from a Dayak Village in Sintang
10 representatives from the Ecosystem Alliance Indonesia descended on her home in Baning Pendek, Sintang, West Kalimantan last March 12-13, 2013. She asked us to call her Linda.
She had come here to the land of the Dayak Desa years ago to marry her husband, a Dayak Desa, Lipan. She was fortunate enough to have attended a trade school while growing up, her trade was “catering” and we all benefitted from the wonderful food she served from fresh bamboo shoots to a tasty chicken liver dish mixed with tofu.
But her new found hobby and passion was weaving. She said if she could go to the trade school all over again, she would take up sewing instead of catering.
