Rivers are an important basis for the social life of the Ngaju Dayak, an indigenous population inhabiting the swamp area of Southern Borneo. In recent decades, large-scale projects of natural resource extraction causing extensive environmental degradation and recurrent forest fires have brought about many changes in the ways the local Ngaju people imagine ‘good life’ and engage with the small rivers crossing the swamp forest near their settlement.
