The study's findings reveal the profound understanding of the Dayak Paramasan tribe regarding the harmonious coexistence between humans and nature. Their traditional rituals emphasize the interconnectedness of humanity and the natural world. The research underscores that the local wisdom of this tribe highlights the crucial interdependence between humans and their environment, recognizing that the sustainability of their way of life hinges on preserving their natural surroundings.
