|Headhunting was rampant in BORNEO before Dayak Peacemaking Agreements by Colonial Government.Now ,DAYAKs living PEACE AND HARMONY among each other..|
3 Reasons for abandoning headhunting are:
1)After Peacemaking Agreements at Tumbang Anoi (Kalimantan) ,Marudi (Sarawak ) & Kapit (Sarawak)
2)Coming of Christianity, with education where Dayaks are taught that headhunting is murder and against the Christian Bible's teachings.
3)Dayaks' own realization that headhunting was more to lose than to gain.
