Local wisdom defined as the ability of a community to adapt to, organize, and manage the environment and culture that affects their lives. The research conducted in the Boti community of East Nusa Tenggara Province aims to describe and understand ume kbubu as a form of local wisdom of the Boti community in maintaining food security and protecting them from disasters. The method used in this study was a qualitative method with a phenomenological approach. The characteristics of this research data are classified as sensitive research data; therefore, it takes a long time to obtain. Observation and interviews were data collection techniques used in this research. The result indicated that the structure of ume kbubu shows the local wisdom of the Boti community in adapting to the environment and influencing the scattered settlement structures. In addition, the function and symbolization of ume kbubu are closely related to the local wisdom of the community in storing and managing staple food (corn), which is the strength of the Boti community in facing the food crisis. The settlement structure of the Boti community, supported by strict customary rules, becomes a barrier in social interaction that can protect the community from disasters, such as infectious diseases. The local wisdom of the Boti community is likely to be an input for the government to study various cultural aspects to deal with disasters.

Sambas society has been shaped over a long history. Several folklores serve as the foothold in interpreting and referring to the dynamics of the past. This paper contains two popular stories, namely Sambas from the eternal friendship between Syamsudin and Saribas, and Sambas which is interpreted as three ethnic groups. The two stories became the basis for seeing the diverse Sambas. To reveal the diversity of Malay Sambas, the research was carried out in four stages of the historical method, namely heuristics, verification, interpretation, and historiography. This study shows that the diversity in Sambas is recorded in the people’s collective memory, which aims to unite existing individuals.

As the National rice barn, the Southern Sulawesi is often associated with the green revolution of the New Order Regime, especially since Indonesia succeeded the rice self-sufficency in 1984. Furthermore, Southern Sulawesi has an important role as rice supplier in Indonesia which was proven in 1930s. The state control is one of main factors supporting Southern Sulawesi’s success, along with another factor particularly environmental conditions and irrigation development. This article discusses the rice trade network and its relationship to the dynamics of export ports in Southern Sulawesi in the 1930s. By applying the historical method, this study employed primary sources, such as archives, journals, newspapers, and magazines. The findings show that the rice trade during the 1930s experienced a significant development as the state involved in the trade in 1933. The increase was seen in the trading system and the amount of exported rice. The increase which was seen in the trading system and the amount of exported rice indicates the significance of Southern Sulawesi as one of the rice barns in the Dutch East Indies. By describing the production areas, involved actors, export ports, and trade networks, this study shows the relationship between intra- and inter-regional trade.

This article discusses two things. First, the historiography of the pilgrimage in South Sulawesi during the State of East Indonesia. Second, the correlation between rice and copra as commodities had impacts on economic growth in South Sulawesi. The method used in this article was the historical method by analyzing mainly contemporary archives. This study shows that the people in South Sulawesi can perform the pilgrimage due to the economic growth through rice and copra trade activities in this area, at least during the State of East Indonesia in 1946-1950. One of the benchmarks of economic growth is the number of people in South Sulawesi performing the pilgrimage, especially those who come from rice and copra producing areas.

North Kalimantan Province (Kaltara) is the 34th province or the youngest province inIndonesia. The establishment of the province is inseparable from long historical dynamics.This can be seen from the period of the establishment of the Bulungan Sultanate, the DutchEast Indies colonial government, the Japanese occupation government, until the Indonesiangovernment. By applying historical approach, this paper aims to explain the historicaldynamics of the establishment of North Kalimantan Province after 1998, since regionalautonomy strengthened in 1999 through Law Number 22 of 1999 on Regional Governmentto the final establishment through Law Number 20 of 2012 on Establishment of NorthKalimantan Province. The results of this study indicate that the establishment of the provincecannot be separated from the spirit of regional autonomy that was intensified after 1998.In addition, a number of multidimensional studies in the social-economic, natural resourcemanagement, defense-security, and territorial fields have become a strong foundation forthe establishment of the province. Thus, political processes, both at the central and regionallevels, as well as in-depth study and great local community support were key factors in theestablishment of North Kalimantan Province. This become a historical dynamic in thehistory of regional government in the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI).

Tradition of an ethnic group will still exist and be sustainable if the supporting communitycontinues to carry out its role in accordance with its function in the tradition. This paperexplains how bimbang bebalai tradition in the Serawai tribe, which could be implementedduring the reign, is no longer carried out even though it has been facilitated by thegovernment. In analyzing the problem, the A.R. Radcliffe-Brown structural functionalapproach was used by focusing on the analysis of the role functions of each structure. Thestudy was conducted with a qualitative approach with interviews and observations as aprimary data collection tool and supported by literature study. The study has found thatbimbang bebalai tradition cannot be implemented at this time because the existing role ofindigenous institution and structure in the tradition itself does not work. The role of thegovernment that is overboard actually eliminates the community’s role which is supposedto be facilitated as the owner and executor of the tradition.
