Dyak Chief

#170 Dyak ChiefAt the right is a sample #170 Dyak Chief of the images available in our Borneo photo gallery. This photograph was probably taken by Canon Spencer on a glass lantern slide plate while visiting one of his missionary children ministering in Borneo. The people back home in Canada were fascinated by these photos of other peoples in different parts of the World and especially of the aboriginal peoples there to whom the Christian Missionaries were sent. The Dyak Chief in this Borneo Photo appears to be holding a club and a shield and is dressed in traditional attire. Many of the details of these customs and attire were lost with the infiltration of Western Colonial Powers.✞
