Ethnomedicinal plants knowledge of the Tengger tribe is abundant, but efforts are needed to preserve it. Younger generation contributes greatly to the preservation of this traditional knowledge. Here we advance our fndings on traditional knowledge of medicinal plant from Tengger tribe, Argosari village and reveal the education system of their young generation, not only for conservation purposes, but also for further ethnopharmacological research. Data on traditional knowledge and education system of their young were collected from 2011 to 2020 in the Tengger tribe of Argosari. Information was obtained through semi-structured interviews and in-dept observation with informants who were selected using snowball sampling. This ethnomedicinal field study uses descriptive analysis and quantitative ethnomedicinal indices (SUV and ICF). We found 68 plant species from 38 families using various plant parts, preparation methods, and administration modes. The highest SUV was found in Foeniculum vulgare Mill. (0.87) and the highest ICF was observed in gastro-intestinal disorders category. The education system applied to the younger generation is through informal education delivered orally by the family (83.33%).
