Abstract

Serial Anak-Anak Mamak (the Mamak Children Series) of Tere-Liye show how local traditions must fight and survive in maintaining local wisdom against the interests of capital owners who exploit nature by using modern technology to benefit much income. This paper aims to show that culture does not move in empty space, there is always a fight and a struggle for space in it. Literary work as a cultural production records the history of socio-culture in its own way that represents the principles of life of a society. This paper analyzes that even though it is delivered verbally, local wisdom has its own system in managing the order of life of the people and preserving the nature they live in. This paper also analyzes that the development of a region generally does not involve the community of a region so that development aimed at the progress of a society actually destroys the natural and social-cultural order of the community itself. This paper uses the concept of literary ecology or ecocriticism, namely a critique which sees literature in relation to the environment. This research found that local values in Indonesia are eroded because there is a stuggling for values, and the local wisdom or values are still trying to survive.
