Abstract

Seeing the current condition of Kutai National Park, it is necessary to evaluate the proposed special zone activities associated with ethnic typologies and perceptions of people who inhabit this area, the biophysical potential of the area related to the form of land management in this area. The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility of a proposed special zone in the Kutai National Park based on land use patterns which are divided into three lanes namely green lane, interaction lane and cultivation lane associated with their potential, social, economic, and ecological uses. This study used a descriptive qualitative research method with informants from the local government, customary leaders, Kutai National Park managers, and local communities. The results of this study indicate that the social and economic life of people is influenced by habits/behavior based on these tribes in managing nature and treating nature, they apply their respective local wisdom to be able to preserve nature and make their lives prosperous. The community wants the status of a Kutai National Parkland enclave, not a zoning system either a special zone let alone a relocation. The community needs protection, certainty, and the right to be fostered economically by the government because the status of the National Park attached to the land they inhabit at this time gives a sense of worry that later they will be expelled.
