They have a strong cultural identity and practice their adat traditions and customs, which is centered on rice cultivation and cooperation between the people, as well as protection and worship of the forest and natural resources. This traditional belief system is mixed with their official religion of which the majority are Roman Catholic (94.8% in Bea Nehas; 69% in Diaq Lay and 86.7% in Dea Beq), while the remaining population is Protestants or Muslim. Secondary target group: The Dayak Wehea Institution, which represents the three primary communities as well as the three neighbouring Dayak communities of Nehas Leah Bing (1375 households), Long Wehea (550 households) and Jak Luay (387 households).

Det ansøgte projekt har til formål at styrke den oprindelige befolkning af stammen Dayak Wehea gennem øget organisering, viden og kapacitet til at advokere og gøre krav på deres rettigheder til land og skovressourcer, samt til at engagere sig i bæredygtige levestrategier og øge deres velfærd gennem mindsket afhængighed af de omkringliggende oliepalme-, mine- og tømmerselskaber. Projektet er baseret på resultaterne af en joint finalization udarbejdet i oktober 2015 og retter sig primært mod tre landsbyer i Øst Kalimantan, Indonesisk Borneo.
