A Forest Without Trees

A Forest Without Trees

(p.161) Six A Forest Without Trees
Rich Forests, Poor People

Nancy Lee Peluso

University of California Press

This chapter focuses on Kalianjat village, located beside a 2,000-hectare tract of forest currently designated for pine production. (Kalianjat is a pseudonym, as are the names of other villages, small towns, the forest subdistrict, and people mentioned in this chapter.) Kalianjat villagers know that the Indonesian government claims Kaliaman forest but refuse to regard the forest lands as national property off limits to their long-term access. The first half of the chapter analyzes the village structure of access to land and shows how some class tensions are relieved by access to extensive tracts of forest land for tum pang sari. The second half looks at the history of village confrontations with external forces.

Keywords:   Kalianjat, villagers, pine production, Kaliaman forest
