Abstract

The development acceleration of a new urban environment on the borders of Indonesia-Timor Leste is both an opportunity and a challenge for indigenous peoples. The economic development policy of the Special Economic Zone has an impact on the development of the region to be the center of strategic activity on the nation’s border. In the NTT region, the development of the area comes with constraints. Using a qualitative descriptive approach, this study examines the emergence of problems in indigenous communities in new urban life. The process of adaptation becomes a natural occurrence carried out by the community when faced with a new environment. But in practice, there are significant differences that require the community to carry out certain strategic planning and strategies to adapt.
