Abstract


ABSTRACT: Local wisdom has an important meaning to maintain cultural sustainability which is increasingly eroded by globalization,  the basis of cultural identity and the last stronghold of cultural defense, especially in the coastal areas of Indonesia's maritime region. This descriptive study aims to explore the values of local wisdom in the taboo of Orang Suku Laut in Lingga Regency.  Data collection uses depth interviews and field observations. The results showed that the values of local wisdom in the taboos of Orang Suku Laut  manifested in three forms, namely 1) entertaining wisdom, 2) educating wisdom, and 3) wisdom of spiritual perfection. Entertaining wisdom is the outer layer of their lives. Educating wisdom is the second layer to increase marwah and dignity. Whereas the wisdom of spiritual perfection is the core layer containing the efforts of spiritual perfection as a way of worshiping worship and warning of commands related to divinity. It can be concluded that local wisdom in the taboo of the Orang Suku Laut contains values related to life. The values of local wisdom can be an instrument in developing of a model of empowering the Orang Suku Laut in Lingga Regency in the context of sustainable maritime development.
