Abstract: The existence of indigenous peoples in Indonesia has been regulated in several regulations. Currently, there are no specific regulations on indigenous peoples in Indonesia. Indigenous peoples and their traditional rights have been governed by the highest to the lowest provisions. However, the rules often do not match each other. As a result, there is uncertainty about the definition of indigenous peoples. This article discusses the contestation of concepts, rules, and institutions governing indigenous peoples in Indonesia. A large number of regulations on indigenous peoples has created a situation of irregularity and raises many interpretations of the position of indigenous peoples. This uncertainty raises barriers to fulfill the constitutional rights of indigenous peoples. This article is the result of theoretical library research. This study is also a bibliographic study with regulatory and conceptual approaches.
Keywords: Contestation; Indigenous Peoples; Constitutional Rights.
