Abstract

This paper aims to analyze the phenomena of democracy in terms of local election in the Toraja area related to the existences of the toraja ethnic group as the majority and their indigeneity. It tends not simply as the way to proof the “people rule” as it is usually knowing only by people in related to the democracy that is legalized by the state regulation. That democracy event is an opportunity for their customary guidance existences that makes this situation as the “legal pluralism” arena. That situation should be viewed as a critical discourse between the general idea of democracy that formalized by the state and the local values. Hence it seems that presences of both laws will influence the Toraja’s form of democracy that shows dynamics of the state formal regulation and the customary law existences.
