Menelisik Kampung Sunda Wiwitan

Custom House of Baduy

Langit cerah menyambut kedatangan saya di desa Ciboleger kabupaten Lebak, Banten. Teriknya pancaran sinar matahari tak menyurutkan langkah kaki untuk memulai menapaki jalan setapak dan berbatu, diiringi suara-suara binatang hutan yang saling bersahut-sahutan silih berganti demi menikmati suasana desa yang dihuni para manusia alam.

Baduy, demikian mereka menyebutnya, adalah satu dari beragam jenis suku di Indonesia yang menghuni pedalaman hutan provinsi Banten, Jawa Barat. Tak ada listrik, barang mewah, apalagi kendaran bermotor, semua kebutuhan hidup mereka bersumber dari alam. Unik nya, masyarakat baduy selalu mengandalkan telapak kaki mereka untuk menempuh puluhan bahkan ratusan kilometer hingga berhari-hari lamanya tanpa harus bergantung pada kendaraan umum maupun pribadi, semua mereka lalui dengan berjalan kaki. Sebuah konsistensi adat yang tak pernah tergerus oleh perkembangan zaman.

Clear skies greeted the arrival of me in the village of Ciboleger Regency of Lebak, Banten. Brightly glow of sunshine did not shattered our FootFall to start stepping on the footpath and Rocky is accompanied by the voices of forest animals cry ber mutually alternates for the sake of enjoying the atmosphere of the village inhabited by the human nature. Baduy, as they call it, is one of various kinds of tribes in Indonesia that inhabit the forests of the Inland province of Banten, West Java.

There is no electricity, let alone the many other luxury items, motor, all their life needs are sourced from nature. And the baduy communities uniquely, always rely on their soles to reach dozens even hundreds of kilometres until the days of duration without having to rely on public transportation as well as personal, all of them had gone through on foot. A consistency of indigenous peoples who never rushes by the times.
