Abstract

This study aims to determine the reasons for the implementation of the learning Indonesian History during the Western Nations Period based on Local History and the development of Indonesian History teaching materials with the local content being the people of Medan, North Sumatra, during the Colonial Period by Western Nations. The research method used herein is historical research consisting of four stages, namely heuristics, source criticism, interpretation/analysis, and historiography. Based on research results it is known that Indonesian History Learning of the Western Nation Period based on Local History must be implemented because the master book for Indonesian History during the Western Nations Period is very minimal in discussing Dutch colonialism and its impact on the people of Medan City, North Sumatra. One of the impacts of the presence of Western nations is the creation of multiculturalism in the Medan society of North Sumatra. With this understanding, it is hoped that the people of Medan in North Sumatra will be more tolerant, thereby maintaining national integration.
