Abstract

The Kepulauan Riau Province is famous for its diverse cultural wealth, including literature, music, and dance. One of the most well-known literary works born in this land of peppercorns is Raja Ali Haji's Gurindam 12, which is very valuable. Not only that, but the Kepulauan Riau also has various forms of traditional cultural expressions (TCEs). They are still alive and developing in multiple forms of intangible heritage in the Kepulauan Riau Malay community, such as Gurindam Dua Belas, Gazal, Makyong, Malay Pantun, Gendang Siantan, Gubang, Mendu Bersama. West Kalimantan, Tudung Manto, Joged Dangkung, Noble Play, Gasing, Lang Lang Buana, Bejenjang, Henna Dance, and many more. As mentioned above, various forms of TCEs of the Kepulauan Riau have been by the Ministry of Education and Culture as intangible cultural heritage originating from the Kepulauan Riau. The question is whether the recording by the State can be a form of legal protection against various TCEs, resulting in the prohibition of other countries from claiming these various TCEs as cultural heritage originating from their land. Different TCEs, apart from dealing with the issue of legal protection, are also concerned with economic preservation for the community's survival. By developing TCEs, the community can use these as land to increase livelihoods that are useful for the family. Legal protection and utilization of various TCEs have not been well structured and coordinated in a legal system.
