Legal Protection of Indigenous Rights and Traditional Values of Bajapuik Marriage Traditions in West Sumatra
Yenny Febrianty, FX. Adji Samekto, Sukirno
Legal protection of the Bajapuik marriage tradition needs to be done as an effort to preserve and sustain Indonesian culture and in order to realize the cultural resilience of the Pariaman community. The protection referred to here is the substance and form of legal protection provided by the Regional Government in accordance with the mandate of the Regional Government Law and the Law on the Promotion of Culture. Globalization can have a negative impact on the Bajapuik marriage tradition. This happens because of the development of human thought, increasingly rapid technology, and economic principles that are used by the Pariaman community in their lives in West Sumatra. That is why it is necessary to build the concept of protection to maintain the existence of the Bajapuik marriage tradition so that it does not disappear as the local wisdom of the Pariaman community. The law studied is ius constitendum. The data used are primary and secondary data, data collection techniques such as in-depth interviews and participatory observation. Coordination and interaction between ninik mamak, pious clerics and cendik (tungku tigo sajarangan, tali tigo sapilin) must be harmonious and one voice in efforts to protect cultural traditions especially marriages in the Pariaman community.
