Universitas Tanjungpura presents an Online International Seminar on
SOCIAL ADAPTATION OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLE IN THE TRADITIONAL HOUSE TO A NEW MODERN HABIT
Living on in the era of increasing technology gives either good or bad impact, the way of life in the respective indigenous community also need to adapt. For some cases, the impact of technology is forcing them to cope with it whether they like it or not, especially who lives near a city. From this interaction, they also share the knowledge on how they construct the idea of house or even on how they adjust the modern habit to their traditional way of living. The social adaptation of traditional-modern mindset and the relation with traditional house will be an interesting topic to discuss.
