Abstract

This study examines the notion of social philanthropy contained in the oral tradition of multicultural societies in West Bali. This study seeks to explore the values of local wisdom in which it shows a symbolic interaction that is thick with historical nuances. Indonesia as a forum for diversity has the potential to experience vertical and horizontal conflicts. If it is not managed properly, diversity will lead to social disintegration. Therefore, inclusive values are needed to build the adaptive civilization of a plural Indonesian nation. This research offers a perspective on the oral traditions of a society that was born based on the similarities and goals of life as an entity formed by history. This study uses a qualitative research method coupled with three disciplines, namely the science of history which helps explain the origin of communities through the study of archives and documents. Sociological studies help document people's social interactions. Meanwhile, the anthropological approach helps ethnographic research. The results of this study illustrate that oral traditions formed through past agreements tend to be able to become the social glue of multicultural societies in West Bali. This research concludes that social philanthropy is a historical and cultural trend of a multicultural society in West Bali which is formed based on the same fate and purpose in life.
