The relevancy of research on tribal groups

WHY RESEARCH ON TRIBAL GROUPS IS RELEVANT TO SOLVE CONTEMPORARY PROBLEMS Following the demise of the Suharto Regime in May 1998 in Indonesia, the era of reform (reformasi, 1998-2002) heralded democratization, regional autonomy, and decentralization.

Endangered Guardians of the Sacred Forest: the Kanekes Community 2

I encountered the Kanekes or Baduy forest-dwellers in 2010. Ethnically, the Kanekes are Sundanese; linguistically, they speak an archaic Sundanese dialect.
