Local Knowledge Conservation Based on Indigenous Tourism Village


In the current era of globalization, there are many new cultures have emerged from the outside and are spread in all aspects of life. This can be worrying about the condition of local wisdom in several areas of traditional villages in Indonesia, which, with the development of technology in the era of globalization, is feared to have an impact on the behavior of people who are increasingly abandoning local wisdom. The purpose of this paper is not only commercial, but also to preserve the local culture so that it is not degraded by the changing times in the era of globalization. The method used in this research is a literature case study in the form of traditional tourism villages in Indonesia, such as Cirendeu Traditional Village, Ngadas Traditional Village, Tenganan Traditional Village, Kemiren Traditional Village, and Naga Traditional Village. The results of this study reveal how important the role of tourism villages is. These villages serve as the main activity center for local residents who already have a deep understanding of local wisdom values, where they can support each other and apply these traditional teachings in their daily activities, following in the footsteps of their predecessors. In the framework of further research, it is recommended to look for ways to improve accessibility, both in terms of the ease of reaching tourism village locations and communicating with the local government. This action has the potential to have a greater positive impact on the development and sustainability of these traditional tourism villages while allowing more people to interact with its rich culture.
