Abstract

Local wisdom is the knowledge and ideas of wise and noble local citizens who are tied to certain cultural values and local beliefs and are passed down from generation to generation. Culture is the result of human creativity, taste, and initiative expressed via customs, arts, and religious beliefs (religion) among the local population. The Local Wisdom and Cultural Approach is an approach of teaching biology and cognate science subjects that incorporates ethnobiological studies, such as ethnobotany, ethnozoology, ethnoecology, and ethnopedagogy, as well as learning principles such as student-centered learning, joyful learning, meaningful learning, scientific learning, and local wisdom and cultural learning.
