Trip To Baduy tribe
In the world fourth-most populous country, where nearly 90 percent of the people are Muslim an enigmatic Indonesian tribe – Baduy tribe (sometimes dubbed the Indonesian “Amish)- live deep in the remote highland jungles, of Mount Kendeng, west Java on area of 50sq km in isolation since the mid-1500s. And only 150 Km from capital Jakarta with few signs of modern development. Badui tribe live much as their ancestors did hundreds of years ago. Anthropologists think they may be the descendants of priests from the Java Hindu Kingdom of Pajajaran who fled into west Java jungle peaks when Muslim armies overran the region in l578, and forming their own religious clan based on strict adherence to unique religious beliefs, perhaps influenced in some ways by the Hindu religion of the Kingdom of Pajajaran before it fell to the Muslim invaders.
The Baduy (or Badui), who call themselves Kanekes, are a traditional community living in the western part of the Indonesian province of Banten, near Rangkasbitung. Their population of 11,700 is centered in the Kendeng mountains at an elevation of 300–500 meters (975′-1,625′) above sea level. Their homeland in Banten, Java is contained in just 50 km2 (19 sq mi) of hilly forest area 120 km (75 mi) from Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital.
Ethnically the Baduys belong to the Sundanese ethnic group. Their racial, physical and linguistic traits bear much resemblance to the rest of the Sundanese people; however, the difference is in their way of life. Baduy people resist foreign influences and vigorously preserve their ancient way of life, while modern Sundanese are more open to foreign influences and a majority are Muslims.
The Baduy are divided into two sub-groups; the Baduy Dalam (Inner Baduy), and the Baduy Luar (Outer Baduy). No foreigners were allowed to meet the Inner Baduy, though the Outer Baduy do foster some limited contacts with the outside world. The origin of the word Baduy may come from the term “Bedouin“, although other sources claim the source is a name of a local river.
