These empirical facts show that spirit of pluralism as the power, which binds us, begins to fragile. Whereas diversity is a foundation for presenting a pluralistic Indonesia is slowly faded away. We begin to lose our foothold. Those phenomena should not be continually abandoned. Various efforts should be done to minimize or even stop all phenomena which threat our diversity. Improving nationality character and the spirit of diversity by continually inherit multiculturalism values from various local wisdom are powers to unite us are the important and urgent things to do. Therefore, this study is focused on the manifestation of multicultural values which are derived from the local wisdom which grow and develop in the midst of community life. The local wisdom of Maluku People is the identity of Maluku community which is full of social, moral and ethical values which bind its community continuously.
