danum magazine

DANUM Magazine was created by Dayak youth to feature the voices of the Dayak indigenous community in Kalimantan, and their stories of culture, the environment, and humanity, to an international audience through a bilingual magazine (Bahasa-English, with Dayak mother tongue). DANUM is sustainably made from waste paper which is then manually bound.
