The Baduy customary territory is located in the Lebak Regency in Banten, West Java. The daily lives of the Baduy people are shaped by principles of simplicity, self-sufficiency and a deep reverence towards nature. To meet their daily needs, the Baduy people cultivate rice and yams, weave their own cloth to make clothes, and make agricultural tools and household items using materials sourced from their customary forests. The Baduy people are also well known for trading in forest honey and palm sugar.
The Baduy community is divided into two socially distinct groups: Baduy Luar and Baduy Dalam. While the Baduy Dalam or Inner Baduy group maintain a traditionally reclusive lifestyle, the Baduy Luar or Outer Baduy group are more open and engage with people outside the community.
