people living primarily in Indonesia, in the south and southeast of the island of Kalimantan (population approximately 1.7 million by a 1965 estimate), and also in Malaya (population approximately 100,000). The language of the Banjarese is closely related to the Malay language. The religion is Islam. The chief occupations are farming (floodplain rice and the export crops rubber and pepper) and fishing. Crafts (jewelry, etc.) are highly developed. The Banjarese are also engaged in diamond mining. Capitalistic relationships are developing among the Banjarese, although communal elements are retained in the countryside. The culture has been subjected to considerable Javanese influence.
