Abstract: The indigenous people of the Tahol Dayak tribe that were unique and unique to their traditions, gradually began to change, adjusting to the developments that took place in their region. The socio-economic life of the community and bring a variety of new values and habits to the social life of the local community, such as habits in dressing, behaving, talking, etc. , which gradually began to be imitated by local residents. Then related to the economic aspect, with the increasing frequency of the Dayol Tahol tribal tribal community mingling with outsiders, it automatically creates new business opportunities for the community. The purpose of this study is to identify and conduct systemic analysis of the factors that hinder the occurrence of socio-cultural transformation in a direction that can improve the living standards of the Tahol Dayak tribe. In this qualitative research, the position of the researcher is 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. Based on the explanation in the previous chapters, the following conclusions can be drawn, namely the supporting factors for the socio-cultural transformation towards improving the standard of living of the Dayak Tahol Tribe, among others the strong customs including the role of traditional leaders in fostering indigenous peoples in terms of mutual cooperation but on the other hand traditional leaders are also a limiting factor because they do not support changes that are considered contrary to ancestral customs even though these changes lead to reducing bad habits such as excessive drinking. Other supporting factors are facilities and infrastructure in the Dayol Tahol community such as the construction of bridges and ports. This is supported by the Malinau Regional Government program with the Village Movement building. On the other hand, access to information technology that is still minimal is an obstacle to social cultural transformation that can improve people's lives.
