Traditional Head, Guradog Village, Government Cooperation


Guradog Village has a duality of leadership, namely formal leaders (village heads and village government structures) with informal leaders (traditional heads and customary structures) where there is a relationship between customary roles in the daily life of the community and forming complementary and supportive relationships in accordance with the authority and social fields it handles. The relationship in the implementation of village leadership is in collaboration with different roles both in terms of administering government, development programs, social life of the community, and political aspects. This study uses the theory of village governance related to cooperation with community organizations or village customary institutions where the cooperation from Rahyunir consists of six elements, namely: consultative relationship, coordinative relationship, partnership relationship, deliberation relationship, mediation relationship, and social control relationship. The research method used by researchers is a qualitative method with descriptive analysis and an ethnographic approach. The selection of informants in this study used a purposive technique. The results of this study illustrate that in the life of the Guradog indigenous people they still carry out traditional hereditary traditions such as ngarengkong, namely moving rice from the fields to the traditional rice barns or leuit besides that there is a seren taun event where the event is a thanksgiving to the ancestors who provide the harvest overflow to the village. Apart from that, along the way, there is a cooperative relationship between the village government and the customary government, such as a consultative relationship and a coordinating relationship where the village head or jaro always consults and coordinates with the traditional government in customary meetings related to policies, programs and customary activities being held. The deliberation relationship is seen from the role of the community who is actively involved and obeys the recommendations of their customary heads, one of which is known as the kaolotan culture. The mediation relationship is related to the role of the customary head and the village government in the event of a dispute between the communities where the two leaders act as mediators in both customary mediation and village mediation. And this is related to the relationship of social control where the customary head obeyed by the community tries to create social order in the community.
