Dayak Segandhu is a community that has various peculiarities. Customs, beliefs, and distinctive lifestyles become the identity of the community in interacting and socializing with the wider community. But on the other hand, the peculiarities possessed are not able to make the community more empowered amid global needs. Awareness of the community’s need for empowerment can only make it an object of interest by utilizing the peculiarities of tourism or research without being able to provide welfare to the community. Qualitative approach to phenomenological design and interview and observation techniques bring research to community empowerment through development of local identity. The results show that developing a local identity as social capital can be enhanced by education and training through community social-cultural collaboration. This is not only able to provide welfare for the community tentatively, but also for sustainable prosperity.
