Abstract


This paper aims to explain that the social dynamics in Papua does not always present the story of
conflict and disintegration, but also about the social integration, harmony, and peace as can be observed
in the Fakfak community in West Papua Province. By using the methods of descriptive analysis of the
qualitative data collected from field observations, interviews and documentation studies, the authors
managed to formulate several important findings. First, the results of acculturation between religious
values and culture are important elements that make the social norms of harmonious and tolerant in
Fakfak, as described in the local knowledge of “the three furnaces stone”. Second, the institutionalization
of values and social integration processes in the community can work well, if the support of local forces
and civil society groups work together to promote peace. At the same time, this paper also reminds that
the conflict issues, such as religious radicalism and separatism, if not handled carefully can potentially
damage the social integration that has been well maintained.
