Jurang Koak Indigenous Land Warriors (JKILW) or ‘Pejuang Tanah Adat Jurang Koak’ claimed that some of the conservation areas of Mount Rinjani National Park (MRNP) are the property of their ancestral heritage. The claim was considered biased by the MRNP manager, as it was very difficult to prove, and so was by JKILW in taking back the area claimed to be customary land that had violated the rules, encroaching the Rinjani forest. In response to the encroachment action, the government made some approaches by negotiation and compromise, but it was not successful, so that law enforcement efforts were carried out, in turn generating a lot of resistance from the community. This land tenure conflict illustrates how legal ambiguity is about handling forestry issues and explains how complex Indonesia’s political history of land ownership is and its impact on the livelihoods of local communities. Using a qualitative method through a case study approach, this research aims to reveal how community conflicts are resolved, as well as to explore how community is connected to other stakeholders through social capital theory consisting of bonding, bridging and linking social capitals. The results of study explain that bonding social capital was getting stronger because of the role of community leaders who always help and nurture members in dealing with conflicts, so that community solidity is maintained. Meanwhile, bridging social capital was realized through the assistance of local NGO’s and linking social capital through local authority to get support in conflict resolution.
