Private radio, which relies on programs with local cultural content in local languages, affects the success of reaching large audiences and financial benefits. In East Java, four private radios have the advantage of local cultural programs, namely Radio Jodhipati FM in Nganjuk, Radio Sritanjung FM in Banyuwangi, Radio Nada FM Sumenep, and Radio Media FM in Surabaya. This study aims to determine what cultural programs can increase the number of listeners and profitability on the four cultural radios. Furthermore, to find out why listeners like local cultural programs of each radio. This research on broadcast content on four cultural radios uses virtual ethnographic methods by collecting data, both offline and online. Researchers are involved in broadcasting activities on four cultural radios (offline) and listener interaction activities in the virtual world (online), namely Facebook and WhatsApp. This study conducted interviews with twelve informants representing radio management, local cultural figures, and loyal listeners. The results showed that each radio has excellent cultural programs with a solid appeal to maintain listener loyalty. The four cultural radios involve cultural experts in designing cultural programs. Listeners try to maintain local tastes because they realize that love for local culture is a strengthening of national identity, which is the richness of Indonesian culture.

One model of ownership of access and the management of coastal and marine resources is a communal property widely applied to indigenous peoples who have ”hak ulayat” (customary rights) over coastal and marine areas. This article aims to analyze and deeply describe the traditional knowledge systems and coastal resource management of the Tobati-Enggros coastal fishermen. This research is a qualitative descriptive study using an ethnographic approach. The data collection techniques used were in-depth interviews and field observations. The data analysis is interpretive descriptive. The results showed the traditional maritime knowledge system in Tobati-Enggros fishers includes the nature of the marine coast, fishing gears, types of fishing, and fishing season. Management of Coastal Resources is also regulated in the Customary Authority under the leadership of ”Keondoafian” (tribal chief) by implementing Manjo in managing coastal resources. This shows that the existence of Manjo customary law and subsistence utilization patterns, based on traditional knowledge systems, the Tobati-Enggros fishing community has local wisdom values closely connected with the aim of marine conservation.

This article aims to introduce the Extended Case Method (ECM) as an approach to qualitative social research. As an approach, the ECM rooted in the ethnography approach in the anthropological tradition and developed in the sociological tradition research. With reference to Michael Buroway (1998) as a developer of ECM and some articles that used ECM as a method, this paper outlines the basic concepts of ECM, their advantages and infirmity, and the application of theories in social research by using ECM. As an extended case, there are four aspects that extend on ECM, namely intervention, processes, structuration, and reconstruction (theory). The advantage of ECM is their four extending. Rather than the infirmity of ECM rooted from their advantage, namely domination, silencing, objectification, and normalization. The use of theory in ECM was carried out from the beginning to the end of the study. Base on their characteristics, ECM very feasible to use to understanding borderless society and ambiguity of case study on research of social science in general, and ethnography especially.

The purpose of this research is to investigate the community resilience based on Leuit (traditional storage of paddies) in Cipatat Kolot customary community in Bogor, West Java. The research method exerts an ethnographic qualitative approach. To assemble data, an in-depth interview with the Cipatat Kolot customary community leaders and observation and documentation was used. The primary information sources of the research come from the leaders of Cipatat Kolot. The result is that the Cipatat Kolot community conserves traditional storage, namely leuit as a traditional building to store paddies from disasters like flooding. It can strengthen cultural resilience because storing paddies in leuit is a traditional heritage from their forefather. Directly, the cultural value can be nurtured from vanishing amid environmental and cultural changes, which can encourage people’s resilience. When storing paddies, there are rules like people must keep half of the overall paddy yields in leuit, and a half of paddy yields must be store at home. People can directly adapt to climate, environmental issues, and eco-catastrophe because they have ample staple food in traditional storage and house.

The article aims to explain Butonese women work ethics focusing on three factors, namely the development of work ethics, the aspects, and the challenges in developing their businesses. The research is a qualitative research with case study. The study is conducted in four villages in Luhu Hoamual District and West Seram District in Maluku Province, including Temi, Tapinalo, Mangge-mangge, and Eli. The informants were the Butonese women whose professions are traders. The methods used in this research are observation, interview and library research. The data analysis was done through reduction, presentation and concluding processes. This study found that the work ethic of Butonese women is not due to a religious calling as Weber said, but as a rational choice following Coleman ideas of surviving from the nature challenges, business opportunities, and family’s economic condition. In this process, two professions with different orientations were born. The pajibujibu sell their agricultural and plantation products from the west coast of Seram in Ambon city, meanwhile, the papalele sell fishery products on the west coast of Seram and the Hitu peninsula. If papalele is easy to get access to capital for business development, pajibujibu finds challenges to get it. Therefore, pajibujibu finds difficult to develop the business in compared to papalele. Nevertheless, both play important roles as actors in the economy of coastal communities.

Language and cultural richness of Biak Numfor in Papua is part of a national identity characterized by "Bhineka Tunggal Ika" (Unity in Diversity) as the basic foundation in building Indonesia. This article aims to reveal the identity system of speech in a community of Biak Numfor, Papua from an anthropolinguistic perspective. While the theoretical approach is an exploration of anthropolinguistic theory, the methodological approach is a descriptive one with an explanative dimension. From an anthropolinguistic perspective, this study seeks to apply scientific principles of socio-cultural data and adapt the steps in scientific studies to other fields of science. This study follows several stages, including providing data, analyzing data, presenting the results of the analysis. As a result, we holistically identify problems that refer to the system of phonology, naming and dialect differences, morpheme interference, syllable patterns, phoneme series, numeralia, unit of measurement, time unit, language vitality, language and culture migration, ritual tradition, dou tradition, faith, social unity and place of living, social stratification, marriage, kinship, legal culture (adat), legal sanctions, and forest ecology. The practical implication of this study is that it can be used as a basic reference in human resource development in Biak Numfor Regency. In addition, since anthropolinguistic theory has not been able to codify all language and socio-cultural systems, we suggest that theoretical collaboration in other fields is needed to complement the development of the theory.
