Abstract

The Dayak ethnic is the major inhabitant of the island along with other ethnics including Javanese, Banjarnese, and Maduranese. Yet the Dayak ethnic comprises a number of sub-ethnic such as Dayak Bakumpai, Dayak Meratus, and Dayak Ngaju. Examples of sub-ethnic Dayak Ngaju inhabit Central Kalimantan region, especially East Kotawaringin district. Although ethnic Dayak Ngaju residents who are still very thick with the tradition of ancestors are a little bit contrary to the teachings of Islam, but that does not mean Islam does not grow there. In fact, Islam grows rapidly and becomes the largest religion in East Kotawaringin with 86.95% of the total population of 426,176 people in 2016. Now, Islam is a religion with the most adherents is because of persistence of the ulama who has the background of various Islamic boarding school in Java and Banjarmasin.
