Abstract
Multiculturalism education is an old concept that always reappears when diversity issues encounter challenges related to the condition of Indonesian nation experiencing disintegrating symptoms. Multiculturalism education needs attention, especially with the development of society as a result of the development of global trends that indirectly often lead this nation into the tendency of uniformity and marginalize cultural diversity in each region. Cultural diversity is the core of multiculturalism, so building the concept of multiculturalism education should start from building positive perceptions on the nation's cultural diversity. Conceptually positive perceptions on cultural diversity refers to the ability of each nation's elements to interpret the plural and heterogeneous conditions of the nation's cultural elements into educational values that are in line with the principle of diversity.
