Karangasem has a myriad art and cultural practices that the Karangasem Culture and Tourism Agency continues to document and about. As planned, this year three popular cultural practices will proposed to the central government to receive aknowledgment as National Cultural Heritages; the mageret pandan (pandanus war), aci usaba sumbu and usaba dangsil.

Division Head of the Arts and Culture at the Karangasem Culture and Tourism Agency, Ni Made Suradnyani, recently stated that the agency just needs to document the usaba dangsil of Bungaya Customary Village, Bedandem –that is performed every 12 years, before the proposal to theMinistry of Education and Culture through the provincial government of Bali is complete.  The usaba dangsil is scheduled to be held in August this year. “We just came from Bungaya customary village to ask for permission from the local chief and kubayan to doceument the event. Thankfully we have been given permission”, explained Suradnyani.

Two other cultural practices that had previsouly been proposed, the terteran and gebug ende are just waiting to be verified by the central government. All the other administrative requirements for applying to be aknowledged as National Heritages, have been fullfilled. The verification process was scheduled to take place in June or July this year, however as of the end of July the verification team had yet to confirm when they would be coming to Karangasem. If both the terteran and gebug ende successfully pass the verification process, Krangasem will have a total of three Ntional Cultural Heritages recognised by the Ministry of Education and Culture.

Previously -in 2015, the geringsing cloth of Tenganan Pegeringsingan had been designated as a national cultural heritage. IN that case it was Bali’S provincial government that recommended that it be aknowledged by the central government. Apart from Jasri Village’s terteran and Seraya Village’s gebug ende at Seraya the Bali Culture Agency is also recommending that Timbrah Customary Village’s aci usaba sumbu in which thousands of roasted suckling pigs are offered during the ritual also be aknowledged. Unfortunatly, the recommendatino failed to qualitfy at the national level because of incomplete administrative requirements. This year the adminisrative requrements have been fullfilled , so it another application will be submitted. (BTN/kmb)
