Lesta Rimba

#LestaRimba is a social media campaign using Instagram as a medium. #LestaRimba raised the issue of the Orang Rimba’s struggle to protect their customary forest. Over the years the Orang Rimba’s forests have been damaged by the massive exploitation of natural resources, expansion of palm oil plantations, forest conversion due to transmigration from the islands of Java and Bali, and the Bukit Dua Belas National Park zoning system which forced the Orang Rimba to leave their customary forests. They experienced injustice in the forest where they have guarded and lived for hundreds of years from generation to generation. Their lives and culture are related to the Bukit Dua Belas forest, if it is gone, their identity and their culture are also gone, and Orang Rimba’s life is done.

 

Therefore, this campaign aims to educate and make people aware that Orang Rimba play an important role in this life, especially for forest and culture sustainability. Supporting and protecting the Orang Rimba is the same as protecting the forests in Sumatra, our lives, and this earth
