Strong Ties to the Ancestral Land

gede-palgunadiCompared to the other ethnic groups in Indonesia, let’s say to Javanese or Padang, Balinese people are often given a predicate of ‘disliking to wander.’ Why does it happen? Many reasons can be raised. The commonest reason is the attachment to Hinduism and customary tradition. Well, Balinese humans are very difficult to leave the land of their ancestors.
However, a lot of Balinese people have scattered in various islands across Indonesia, right? Their favorite destinations, for instance, are Sulawesi and Sumatra. Of course, they have gone to another island and left their homeland because they are forced to do it, facing economic trouble and going to the other land through resettlement program. They moved to the island having been promised by the government. Some residents just need to build a house and plow rice fields provided, but some others are forced to clear the jungles to create settlement, rice field and moor.

Meanwhile, some others migrated to Java. Generally, they are continuing their study and or followed relatives who had previously settled in Java. There are significant differences owned by migrants to Java or to other regions outside Java. Economically, those migrating to Java have a better economic condition rather than those migrating to Sumatra or Sulawesi. Within decades, the migrants then developed into a new community that cannot simply be uprooted from their ancestral land where ranging from Hinduism, customs and other attributes are taken along. As consequence, we can commonly encounter a lot of ‘Bali Island’ in some regions in Sulawesi and Sumatra.
Many of them are successful. However, some others fail due to some reasons. However, they generally work hard, diligently and behave honest. This work ethic usually takes them to the stairs of success. However, the success does not necessarily make them forget and never forget their ancestral lands where their ancestors used to be. Therefore, on every major religious day like Galungan, Kuningan, Nyepi and some others they return home.

Well, now in this modern era, many Balinese people migrate. It does not happen due to economic problems. But most of them look for a better livelihood. Thus, armed with the skills and competence in their respective fields, we can now find many young Balinese people around the corner of the globe. They have worked in education field and cruises, while some of them had become employers and artists. Is the relation to the ancestral land getting to weaken? Not really. Longing and love for the ancestral land must be accompanied with the development of human potential so as to compete with the other ethnic and human race in the world.
