Siti Komariah, Fajar Nugraha Asyahidda

Abstract

Modernity has become the new identity of human civilization. The hallmark of the new identity is the use of technology not only in terms of material life, but also tangible in the cultivation of values (immaterial). Local knowledge as a source of good values and are expected to be useful for human life, slowly has begun to shift from rapid growth in technology followed by proficiency in using it. Presence technology is essentially to facilitate human life. However, skill is not matched by the importance of awareness to defend the values of local wisdom has led to the gap between indigenous and modernity. The importance of raising awareness of the culture that holds many noble values in the modern era. Research on local wisdom is done in Kampung Dukuh, Garut Indonesia by using descriptive analytic method, to be able to decipher the issues examined analytically to detail through a qualitative approach. The results showed that raising awareness about the importance of local wisdom values within a culture in the modern era can not be done only from the community or indigenous peoples, but rather there must be outside of the role of indigenous peoples by means of combining modernity with traditional culture that holds many local wisdoms that is useful for human life.
