Repong damar is a very important agricultural culture in the Krui indigenous people in the West Coast of Lampung. Repong damar is managed in secondary forests (pulan ngura) where certain species such as dammar dominate the stands of vegetation, fruits, rattan, wood and other types of plants planted. Most of the existing repong are owned by a person or family that is inherited from generation to generation. This study will discuss the management of Repong damar and its meaning for the indigenous Krui people in the West Coast of Lampung and its implications for sustainable forest resource management. Special emphasis is placed on the role of the local knowledge possessed by the Krui indigenous people in maintaining their agricultural cultural practices.
