Education and culture are something that cannot be separated in everyday life. Ethnomathematics is here to bridge between culture and education, especially learning mathematics. This study aims to describe matters relating to mathematics in the architecture of the Radakng house in Sahapm Village in order to obtain information in the development of ethnomathematical science towards mathematics learning. This type of research is qualitative research with an ethnographic approach. Data collection techniques used in this study are observation and documentation. The results showed that in the architecture of the Radakng house there are mathematical elements, namely, geometry consisting of rectangle, beam, square, parallelogram. The architectural form of the Radakng house in Sahapm Village, the Kanayat’n Dayak community, which is still maintained and inhabited by the community, has values that can be used in life. These values are moral, historical, and philosophical values, which can be felt, reflected, and applied in everyday life, such as values that teach communal life, togetherness, mutual cooperation, openness, mutual help, storage and family.
