Abstract
Indigenous system as a form of traditional wisdom for generations proven effective in maintaining and ensuring the sustainability of public life of Kasepuhan Community at Mount Halimun needs to be adopted and synergized in regional development related to conservation of natural resources and the environment. Research with non-experimental method of explorative surveys conducted to describe the perceptions and cultural communities to their natural environment. The results showed that the perception of the community rooted in a division system of forest functions and traditional agricultural systems - especially in rice systems like rice or paddy fields, two systems are still adhered to today, where traditional agriculture that are adaptive to the local environment turns out to be a sort of "germplasm bank" of local rice varieties that became a source of food as well as life's basic principal that is forbidden to be traded. The systems thus, protect the existence of water resources to preserve the long-term agricultural systems, community life, and the environment as a whole.
