Youth Forum: ‘Stories That Matter: Discovering My Roots’

‘Until I was in high school, I didn’t refer to myself as ‘Indigenous’. I didn’t speak in my mother tongue. My father is Javanese and my mother is Dayak Ngaju, therefore I faced a dilemma. I always asked myself ‘who am I, am I Dayaknese? Am I Javanese?’, but the voice inside my heart keeps saying that I’m Dayak. So, I learn how to speak Dayak Ngaju. After I’m able to speak in Dayak Ngaju, I feel a sense of belonging to Dayak Ngaju Community. Now I really am proud to say I’m Dayak.’

The scale of destruction of our rainforest is so large that it now has a significant impact on global climate. For this reason, Youth Act Kalimantan initiated a youth movement, 'The Heartland Project', which aims to mobilize young people from all over Indonesia to participate in planting trees and restoring remaining forests in their area.

Replanting our Future - Indonesian Youth leading regeneration of ancient forest in Kalimantan

Peat swamp forests in Kalimantan provide a wide range of benefits for humankind and other creatures. It is home to many unique plants and animals that can be only found in Kalimantan. Forests also provide social and economic benefits to the community, especially for the Indigenous People, Dayak People. Many villagers can source rattan, wood, herbs, resin, fish and fruits from the forest. But unfortunately, due to annual forest fires, we have lost thousands of hectares of our peat swamp forests. For this reason, Youth Act planted 500 trees to help with the renewal of a burned peat area.
