Abstract: The indigenous people of the Dayol Tahol tribe in the North Malinau Subdistrict, Malinau District are now experiencing a paradox which is on the one hand the community is slowly opening up with various economic and social advances, but on the other hand this area is known as an area that contains indigenous people steadfast in holding tradition and preserving the sacredness of their territory. Acceptance of technology for the community, especially the village community, both forced and own initiative from the community will influence social behavior on a large scale or degree. Moreover, the introduction of inappropriate technology has implications for socio-cultural changes in society. The purpose of writing this paper is to recommend an alternative model of socio-cultural transformation that can improve the standard of living of the Tahol Dayak tribe. This study uses a qualitative method, the position of the researcher as a human instrument and with participant observation data collection techniques (role playing observations) by observing the activities of the Dayak Tahol indigenous people; and independent interview to analyze social and cultural behavior in the activity, its impact on social and economic progress, and the inhibiting factors for achieving socio-economic progress. Therefore the researcher must interact with the data source, in the sense that the researcher must really know the conditions in the field and get to know more closely with the people who provide data (research informants) who are the actors in the research area. The following conclusions can be drawn, namely the impact of Socio-cultural Behavior on Social Progress and Community Economy shows some negative impacts that require change so as not to harm the community. The socio-cultural change of the Dayol tribe of the indigenous tribe will place its people in a transitional period that greatly requires a complex approach in their regional and social development.
