Peraturan Bupati Raja Ampat No. 8-Raja Ampat’s Regent Decree # 8
Maya Tribe is Raja Ampat’s indigenous people, which influence is acknowledged by the Government –in this case is the Regency Government. The Regent Decree’s legislation was encouraged by the aspiration of the locals conveyed through the Maya Tribe’s Adat (in this context can be interpreted as “Customary Entity”) Council. Considered as a ‘written’ acknowledgement regarding the Adat’s existence by the Government, this particular Decree is firmly composed on the principles of sustainability, preservation, natural availability and carrying capacity, and local wisdom, in relation with Raja Ampat’s coastal and marine abundance.
