A Ministry of Home Affairs Approves the Proposed 14 Traditional Villages in Jayapura

goodmorningpapua.com – The Ministry of Home Affairs (Kemendagri) approved the proposal for 14 Traditional Villages by the Regional Government of Jayapura Regency, Papua. Even the submission of the codeification will be done in December 2021.

The handover of the codeification by the Directorate General of Village Administration (Ditjen Pemdes) of the Ministry of Home Affairs is estimated to be the first nationally in accordance with Law Number 6 of 14.

The 14 villages that have been approved and will be legalized are Heram Ayapo Village, Asei Besar Village, Yokiwa Village, Ifar Besar Village, Homfolo Village, Yoboi Village, Babrongko Village, Dondai Village, Bambar Village, Necheive Village, Waibron Bano Village, Ketmung Village, Bundru Village and Iwon Village.

The chairman of Commission A of the Jayapura DPRD, Hermes Felle, appreciated the struggle of the Jayapura Regent, Mathius Awoitauw, in protecting and empowering the indigenous peoples in Papua, especially the Tabi region.

“The long struggle for 14 traditional villages has finally succeeded after we held a direct dialogue with the Director of Village Development at the Ministry of Home Affairs in Jakarta and the director promised to submit the codeification in December,” Hermes Felle said when contacted, Friday, December 3, 2021.

Hermes hopes that this achievement can spur the spirit of the technical service to prepare other villages to be proposed as traditional villages. Because, as stated by him, the traditional village is a defense that can preserve and care for local wisdom so that it still exists to guard development.
