Abstract

The Bajo people are known as the sea wanderers because they always wander the sea. However, aside from their unique characteristic as people of the sea, the Bajo are also known as Muslims. Therefore, Islam is an important element of their identity, either reflected in their daily life or written in the manuscript Lontarak Assalenna Bajo as the form of self-narration of their cultural history. Islam has been accepted through a continual process of negotiation and development.The Bajo people were not Muslim before they became sea wanderes. They received the influence of Islam from the land-bound people surrounding them as a result of interactions between the two groups.

Abstract

On the one one hand, the Bajo people are well-known as ‘the sea people’ who have their own indigenous belief system – belief in the Lord of the Sea. On the other hand, they also acknowledge themselves as Muslims. Thus, the religious identity of the Bajo people reflects a unique combination of Islamic teachings and their indigenous beliefs. This unique combination is not only expressed in their religious life, in their rituals and worship practices, but also in the values found in their customary practices (adat) as a guiding system for their life. This paper examines the construction and contestation of the religious identity of the Bajo people, especially how they construct their identities in relation to their natural, social, and religious environments. The contestation of the Bajo religious identity covers three aspects: the contestation of the Islam of ‘the sea people’ against the Islam of ‘the land people’, the contenstation of the ‘official’ Islam against the ‘traditional’ Islam, and the challenges of modernity, especially the commodification of the Bajo religious expressions. This contestation, in turn, reconstructs their religious identity into a more adaptive one.

Abstract

The Bajo people are known as the sea people, because they live and depend on the sea for their livelihood. As in any other cultures, the Bajo people also have their own ethical system, which prevails as a ruling guide for their life. The ethical system of the Bajo people is called “Pamali”. This Pamali system is a kind of taboo system, which contains forbidden things that should not to be done. The example of things in Pamali concerned with the sea include: the disposal of waste in the sea, such as lemon peels, sFiges, and any other unused things, including spitting to the sea. Another example is that it is forbidden to catch small fishes and consume them before they reach harvestable size. Because the Bajo people are the sea people, they should keep and maintain the sea as their life environment. The Pamali system is the way for the Bajo people to keep and maintain the sustainability of their life in the sea. The overall program and policy on natural conservation in a wider scope in Indonesia should consider the local genius of the indigenous people, such as local values, wisdoms, and customs, which also play a significant role in maintaining the sustainability of their natural environment, in this case is the Pamali system of the Bajo people.

Abstract

AbstrakRadio Republik Indonesia (RRI) sebagai stasiun radio milik pemerintah membentuk saluran tersendiri bagi siaran-siaran budaya dari seluruh Indonesia yang ditayangkan dalam Programa 4 RRI. Pembentukan Programa 4 RRI yang mengkhususkan pada siaran-siaran budaya tersebut merupakan suatu bentuk akomodasi pemerintah terhadap keanekaragaman budaya di Indonesia, termasuk di RRI Kendari sebagai perwakilan RRI di Sulawesi Tenggara. Tulisan ini akan memaparkan akomodasi dan kontestasi siaran kebudayaan dari berbagai etnis di Programa 4 RRI Kendari. Programa 4 RRI yang menyiarkan kebudayaan dari berbagai kelompok etnis besar di Sulawesi Tenggara, yaitu etnis Tolaki, Buton, Muna, Moronene, Bugis, Makassar, Bajo, Jawa, Sunda, dan Bali. Namun demikian, ternyata siaran budaya di Programa 4 RRI Kendari tidak hanya sebagai sarana akomodasi dari berbagai etnis di Sulawesi Tenggara, tetapi juga terjadi kontestasi budaya antar etnis di udara dalam program tersebut. Sebelum ditayangkan di Programa 4, siaran budaya ini ditayangkan di Programa 1 RRI Kendari, yang daya jangkau siarannya lebih luas serta fasilitasnya lebih lengkap, termasuk sarana siaran interaktif. Sementara itu, Programa 4 merupakan saluran yang belum lama dibentuk oleh RRI Kendari, sehingga daya jangkau siaran serta fasilitasnya masih terbatas, termasuk belum adanya sarana interaktif. Keterbatasan fasilitas Programa 4 inilah yang menyebabkan masing-masing etnis di Sulawesi Tenggara merasa tidak lagi terakomodasi ruang budayanya dalam siaran-siaran RRI Kendari bila dibandingkan waktu masih disiarkan di Programa 1.AbstractRadio Republik Indonesia (RRI) as state-owned radio station creates a special channel for cultural programs from various ethnic groups in Indonesia in Programme 4. The establishment of Programme 4 as the special channel for cultural programs is a form of accommodation from Indonesian government toward various ethnic groups in Indonesia, including in RRI Kendari as a branch of RRI in Southeast Sulawesi Province. This paper will describe the accommodation and contestation of cultural programs in Programme 4 RRI Kendari. Programme 4 RRI Kendari broadcast cultural programs from main ethnic groups in Southeast Sulawesi: Tolaki, Buton, Muna, Moronene, Bugis, Makassar, Bajo, Java, Sunda, and Bali.However, the cultural programs in Programme 4 RRI Kendari not only serve as a means for accommodation toward various ethnic groups in Southeast Sulawesi, but contestation is also happened among themselves in these cultural programs. Before they are broadcasted in Programme 4, these cultural programs were broadcasted in Programme 1, which has wider range and has more complete facilities, including interactive facility. Meanwhile, as a new channel, Programme 4 do not have wide range of broadcasting capacity as in Programme 1, and its facilities are still limited. The limitation of Programme 4 facilities makes various ethnic groups in Southeast Sulawesi feel no longer accommodated in cultural programs of RRI Kendari as it was broadcasted in Programme 1 before.
