- Manokwari, tradition; family and Arfak tribe
The development of Islam, especially in the Nuhuwey Arfak tribe family, has caused a change in the attitude and religious behavior of the Arfak people as a native tribe that inhabits the Arfak Mountains of Manokwari, West Papua. This has a positive impact, especially in terms of religion, as evidenced by some priests and even some Nuhuwey Arfak tribesmen who converted to Islam. This study aims to investigate the tradition of Islamic religious education in the Nuhuwey Arfak family. Data were obtained through observation, interviews, and documentation and analyzed using a phenomenological approach. The observation was carried out in several Muslim family heads of the Nuhuwey Arfak tribe with key informants from the Chief, Pastor, and residents of the Nuhuwey Arfak tribe and Muslim Kosepa. The results showed that there were values of acceptability and diversity towards Islam that motivated the Nuhuwey Arfak tribe, which was proven by a large number of their children who had studied Islam well and mingled with other immigrants.
