Local Wisdom of Sentani and Dayak Deyah Communities in Creating Food Security

Laksanto Utomo

This study discusses two groups of indigenous people who use local wisdom to maintain customary land, namely Dayak Deyah indigenous people in Gunung Riut Village, Halong District, Tabalong Regency, South Kalimantan, and Customary Communities around Lake Sentani, Jayapura district. Both of these traditional groups have difference staple foods. Rice is the food of the Dayak Deyah indigenous group, while the Indigenous Group around Lake Sentani is Sago. Most of the Dayak Deyah people live in farming with a system of shifting cultivation or land which is a local wisdom for generations. The method used is qualitative to gather information about local wisdom issues closely related to natural resource management and the environment. This method is based on data or information in the form of detailed description of the situation, event, actor and observed behaviour. Data collected through observation, in-depth interviews, and observation. Observations were made to collect data related to work activities in both Indigenous Communities. The finding of this research is that the local wisdom of indigenous people in creating food security is increasingly eroded by the times. Various government policies prioritize development outcomes rather than maintaining local wisdom of indigenous peoples. Preservation efforts can occur because of the support and cooperation with various parties including the community, the state government and regional governments. These factors are economic factors and cultural factors.
