The theory is used to read data is thought Foucault, the ethnographic method. The results showed that after the government set their village into indigenous village, indigenous people began practicing pure during the New Order practiced but relatively impure. The first step taken was to establish personal traditional authorities in the Village People. For the moment there has been no difference in the discourse between them, either orally, in writing, or in actions for personal gain all tasks in accordance with the customary village offspring. When a person who received the customary positions and said he did not understand anymore customs rules, the solution is not replaced by smart people who are not descendants but forced to learn and promise to be taught along by the crowd. There has been no contestation and conflict about the public perception Village Wale-ale against the discourse of the government to build the Village People Wale-ale. Conclusion: Traditional Desa Waale-ale will be realized in accordance with the government expected.
